Sky Watch: Watching the Sky Watchers

(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

Last weekend I shared with you a series of photos showing the effect of the volcanic ash cloud on the sunset as seen from Hartshead Pike.

I wasn't the only one who had made the journey to the Pike for the occasion, as today's photo shows. This photo was taken last week at the same time as I took the sunset images

The photo shows four other photographers with proper cameras and tripods, unlike my little pocket-sized Sony, which I had to rest on the stone stump to get anything like a steady picture! A number of other spectators were also on the hilltop to see the sunset, in spite of the chilly breeze.

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!
