What an amazing sky! It looks as if Wigan was on Mars!

...A wonderful picture,Kathleen.


Comment by Ellen on 26th October 2013 at 00:54
Oops, I had my laptop tilted backwards--it's not as red as I thought! -but still a great picture!


Comment by Mary O Neill on 26th October 2013 at 01:06
Wow Kath that's beautiful!!


Comment by Janet ( FL ) on 26th October 2013 at 01:21
Beautiful sunrise.. I miss seeing sunrises, where I live, we are surrounded by trees , so I don't get to see the sun until it has risen above the treetops. :-(


Comment by Lizzie down under on 26th October 2013 at 02:57
Thank you Kath....beautiful....in my album....no hesitation....cheers!!!


Comment by Anne on 26th October 2013 at 07:51
A glorious morning, well done Kath


Comment by Colin Harlow on 26th October 2013 at 08:31
Very good photo Kathleen, the sky reminds me of very hot steel being melted down at a furnace.


Comment by Garry on 26th October 2013 at 08:33
Hot and Cold. Don't forget the clocks tonight.


Comment by kath on 26th October 2013 at 09:33
Not sure if it's technically Wigan lane or Standishgate. this was the day -Sept15th when it got very stormy in the afternoon.


Comment by Maureen on 26th October 2013 at 11:08
That's a lovely shot Kath..it makes me feel warm on this cold morning..pat yourself on the back.


Comment by Gareth on 26th October 2013 at 13:07
Good shot but remember part of the saying - Red sky in the morning - shepherds warning or something similar !


Comment by Maureen on 26th October 2013 at 14:52
Apologies if this comes on twice..Gareth..I think the saying is red sky in morning sailors warning red sky at night shepherds delight..you wonder who started these sayings don't you..I bet somebody says a sailor and a shepherd.lol


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 26th October 2013 at 15:55
Amazimg kathleen,What time of the day was this?

Thanks for the reminder Garry (clocks)


Comment by Ellen on 26th October 2013 at 16:25
How odd, I remember the saying as an either/or, with sailors/shepherds at each end of the day! (that seems a little awkward, but I'm having a rather prolonged senior moment - hope you catch my drift!)


Comment by Neil Rigby on 26th October 2013 at 16:56
Maureen, Shakespeare might have started the saying (either version):
VENUS AND ADONIS:
....
Like a red morn, that ever yet betoken'd
Wrack to the seaman, tempest to the field,
Sorrow to shepherds, woe unto the birds,
Gusts and foul flaws to herdmen and to herds.
....


Comment by Harry C. on 26th October 2013 at 17:14
Well Worth getting up early for.


Comment by kath on 26th October 2013 at 17:22
Red sky in the morning - Shepherds' warning. we did have a very stormy afternoon that day.
Jean - it was taken about 6.30 am I think. it as mid Sept. I took loads because the sky was changing every second and then suddenly the sun is up and it's all gone.


Comment by Maureen on 26th October 2013 at 17:35
Neil,that sounds very feasible doesn't it..thank you,just for curiosity Neil did you go to Blue Coat..my youngest Son has mentioned someone with your name.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 26th October 2013 at 18:47

While shepherds watch the flock at night all seasons on the ground.... lets give it a rest.


Comment by Maureen on 26th October 2013 at 19:32
Ta for replying Neil.


Comment by Carol on 26th October 2013 at 22:37
Lovely photo from today. Awe, I looked at the photos Neil from AG, how cute you all looked on both team photos. Hope they have happy memories.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 27th October 2013 at 19:13
Yes Carol, very happy memories, fantastic school.


Comment by Carol on 27th October 2013 at 20:52
School days are long over yet memories remain Neil. After leaving school I had a friend who had a crush on one of your old team mates, Alan Wilson. But alas the years have caught up with us and now in our late 50s & 60s the memories are lovely to have.
