Colourful Cloudscape

This week's Sky Watch is looking across the Tame Valley in Mossley, just over the hill from Ashton.

I was fascinated by the colours that the clouds above the moors were taking on a few days ago, and was pleased to be able to capture something of it with my camera. This view is looking eastwards so the clouds are reflecting the glow from the sun setting in the west, out of sight because of the hill behind me.

See Google Street View of this location.

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!
