We had this AmAAAAAzing coloured sky the other day - a most incredible orange!
The last time I saw skies with this shade of brilliant apricot-flush was, when living in Africa, the sunsets would set the evening alight as the last of the sunlight filtered through the red dust of the day, making everything positively flame coloured.
As the evening went on and the ether in the atmosphere intensified - the colour deepened.
Can you see a hint of a rainbow? The atmosphere was positively electric.
Further to the west the sky deepened in shade
See that small light flash above that roof top?
That light area was a hint of the normal evening sky as it tried to slip into the picture.
This spectacular sky display lasted about 20 minutes then faded. We had no accompanying rain just a hint of distant thunder. Later on during the week, I mentioned in passing to a colleague at work about our tangerine dream coloured sky and she explained that they'ed had been under that thunder and lightening with a massive deluge like nothing they'ed seen in years. WoW!
Seen any strange coloured skies?
Witnessed or been in a storm recently?
I have!! Have you?
