Rooftops in Swinley. I added a touch (only a touch) of saturation.

I like the way you have caught the shapes of the houses and the flat roo.
Is there someone watching from that bedroom window.

If only it was a sign for some good weather to come...' Red sky at night, shepherds delight.....'?

I like that very much. As soon as I saw it, I saw myself in the infants' class sixty years ago, as we said our prayers at home-time, (which was at four o'clock in those days)..."Now the day is over, Night is drawing nigh. Shadows of the evening steal across the sky". It gave me goosebumps!

Turneresque Brian. A sky of promises. Marvellous.

I remember those words too Irene, was it a hymn ?

You captured that well Brian, certainly looks like the sky is on fire.

Hello Helen. no, I don't think it was a hymn but we said it at home-time. I can't recall it all but it went on to say something like "Birds and bees and flowers soon will be asleep". There was a religious one where we said "Lord keep us safe this night 'til morning light appears. Amen". Then we used to say "Good Afternoon Miss Morgan, (or whoever the teacher was). Good afternoon everyone"

The very first song we had to learn in the infants was "When icicles hang by the wall and Nick the shepherd blows his nail,and Tom bears logs into the hall and milk comes frozen home in pail" when you think about it,how many children know what a nail is apart from the one you hammer into something..especially at four and a half years old..but...it must have made an impression on me ..I've always remembered it.

It was worth a touch of saturation Brian. Brilliant colours and a very good photograph.
