Wordless Wednesday.





The yellow sky and remarkable darkness of early afternoon on Monday before Storm Ophelia hit the UK. All pictures taken between 1 pm - 2 pm, and there is no filter on any of these!

  2. What is it? To me it looks like smoke but I might be a little biased...is it fog?

    1. I would say it was cloud - we're fairly high up here (I just googled it - about 1000 ft. above sea level) and we often get low cloud. May be mist, though - I can never tell the difference, really must look it up. There'll be some smoke among it though, just from people's chimneys. Also, apparently, it's dust - we all of us in the UK had an orange sky from the sand in the Sahara, and a lot of places had a red sun. Very apocalyptic.!

    2. Sahara sand, wow! Now we all have apocalypse skies -- weird, isn't it. It always gets me how the light is all different and orangey.

    3. I know. It can be quite spectacular... I wish I'd taken more pictures, or at the very least one clear one! Not surprisingly my camera was having difficulty with the lack of light!

    1. Good luck! I think we've got another one coming as well - well, Northern Ireland has, and I'm guessing we get the tail end of it...

  4. Hope things have settled down! While the sky does look depressing, it is a good time to be indoors and Curl up and read!

    1. I think it's actually gearing up for another storm tomorrow I'm afraid! Looking at the weather map it seems we (in Northumberland) *just* miss it. Not sure, given the proximity, if we actually will! Well, we'll see. Hopefully it won't be as bad as we've seen abroad :)

    1. It can be - often accompanied by mad budgies hurling themselves all over it though :) (They'd gone to bed at this point, like the two new chickens they thought it was time to go to sleep)
