Sky Watch: Morning Cloud

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

One of the (few) good things about the shortening days is that you get to see the wonderful skies around dawn without having to wake up in the middle of the night!

Today's photo is looking across the Tame Valley towards the Pennine hills just before dawn. For just a few minutes the clouds were lit up with the red light of the sun rising out of sight somewhere beyond the hills. Then, after those few short minutes, the glorious colours fade and the sky just becomes "normal" again. By the time the sun rose above the hills the magic light show had long finished.

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!
