Flames in the sky


The strangest weather conditions on Friday - it was chucking it down with rain all day and then, magically, just before sunset, an unexpected shaft of sunshine appeared.  And the sky suddenly burst gloriously aflame.  I wonder if the people in that aeroplane could see and appreciate it too?  I didn't go far for this photo - just stood on the seat in my backyard, to get a bit of height over next door's bushes.

The rain certainly mucked the Ryder Cup golf tournament up.  I'm not a huge golf fan but the excitement in Wales where it is being hosted was coming over loud and strong.  And then down came the rain, causing the tournament to be suspended for seven hours, and playing havoc with the schedule.

  1. Yes, I noticed that strange sunset on Friday down here as well. (But I didn't take such a striking shot of it as you)

  2. On Friday, we should have taken the children from school to the local church for our harvest service. Instead, we had to have it in the school hall, minus parents because there is not enough room. What a shame!

    Then it suddenly cleared up for sunset with us too! (I have photos in waiting :) )

  3. Beautiful display, nicely captured.

    I guess, if you schedule a major golfing event in Wales during October, some oilskins are going to be essential.

  5. Beautiful sky.It looks like the fire might be coming out of those chimneys. We are having rain, rain and more rain, which is very unusual for us at this time of the year.

  9. This is such a beautiful sky. To have the old building or wall in front really makes the pictures.

  14. Hi Jenny, I am a new visitor to your blog having dropped in from Scott's site - Finding Another View. I enjoyed reading several of the past posts here. The sunset shown was caught at the right time when the sun appeared - aren't such moments worth waiting for?
