Sailor’s Delight

Back in the days when people used to look at the sky and be able to gain a fair idea of what the weather would bring, there was an old saying; “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight, Red sky in the morning, sailor’s warning!”

Recently we had two days in a row of sunsets like this, which is quite unusual, but it has been a funny year for weather anyway. Must be all those farting cows and belching sheep.
Save the Planet! Kill them all and throw them on a BBQ plate.

    great colours and hues Tim ! I often wonder about some of these old sayings, many can come from the northern hemisphere, with weather patterns being in the reverse… hrmm 😉

    • Thanks Tony.
      A lot of those old sayings do come from the N Hemisphere originally, they do work here, however they are usually more relevant to higher latitudes.
