Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Shepherds Warning.


Yesterdays sunrise said it all.



Still it blows, still it rains.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. That looks a bit unsettling! xx

  2. Stunning photograph. I also saw this yesterday morning whilst running along the canal to Whaley Bridge. It went from crimson to red to pink then yellow.

  3. A bit too apocalyptic for me but undeniably impressive.

  4. Drat. I keep composing – and losing – comments. Please forgive if odd bits arrive in your in-basket.
    That sky–if it is a sky and not a Mother Ship come to invade–has something in mind other than raining. It bears watching.

  5. But, wow, is it magnificent!

  6. Batten the hatches, and head for cover! What a sky and what a photo!

  7. it looks like a blanket that is covering the sky. it’s a beautiful image!

  8. Amazing, beautiful, and a little scary.
