Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 26th October, 2013)
What an amazing sky! It looks as if Wigan was on Mars!
...A wonderful picture,Kathleen.
Oops, I had my laptop tilted backwards--it's not as red as I thought! -but still a great picture!
Wow Kath that's beautiful!!
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. :-(
Thank you Kath....beautiful....in my album....no hesitation....cheers!!!
A glorious morning, well done Kath
Very good photo Kathleen, the sky reminds me of very hot steel being melted down at a furnace.
Hot and Cold. Don't forget the clocks tonight.
Not sure if it's technically Wigan lane or Standishgate. this was the day -Sept15th when it got very stormy in the afternoon.
That's a lovely shot Kath..it makes me feel warm on this cold morning..pat yourself on the back.
Good shot but remember part of the saying - Red sky in the morning - shepherds warning or something similar !
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
Amazimg kathleen,What time of the day was this?
Thanks for the reminder Garry (clocks)
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!)
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.
Well Worth getting up early for.
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.
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.
Maureen I went to Abraham Guest School Orrell:-
While shepherds watch the flock at night all seasons on the ground.... lets give it a rest.
Ta for replying Neil.
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.
Yes Carol, very happy memories, fantastic school.
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.
nice photo kath
