Gorgeous colours and beautiful composition
This is taken from a couple of miles from my home.
This was the first time in 9 weeks, for me**, that the sun had set from anything other than a cloudless sky.
**I haven’t been in Macclesfield the full time, I spent 2 weeks in north west scotland, so it’s possible there was cloud at home in that time.
There is also part of a halo or so, hitting the arc? And what else do I see, something like crepuscular rays?
The arc hitting the CZA is most probably a part of the supralateral arc, Nienke. The crepesculars are the streaks of the cirrus in which the arc is displayed.
Thank you Hans!
Well spotted, the arc is a supralateral section.
Wow! It seems a wonderful distopic place! Congrats!
There’s a very nice clean and fresh feel to the overall picture which makes it most attractive to look at. The clouds are lovely and indicate a good day’s weather to come and enjoy. Like the scenery too.
One of my favourite views.
Anthony – do you ever see a bearded man on a bicycle with a black and white collie running along, sometimes accompanied by a youth with a red and white collie? Often on the Middlewood way. Could be me.
Thankyou Laurence – it was indeed a fair weather indicator, though it seems a long time ago now! Great day to be out enjoying the view. (This is looking North – Manchester on the horizon).
Dave, that description sounds familiar… I am often out on the Middlewood Way.
Though I am usually focused on the ‘weeds’, I shall keep an eye out for you!
Stunning clouds, Anthony. Islands in the sky :)
Majestic sky – I love the light in the sky, so serene above the darkening landscape. And the lenticular turns of these clouds!
Great cloud shot you have hear Anthony , and many thanks for you comment on my last photo !
Wow, what a glorious afternoon sky.
I was about 3 miles west of where you took this shot on that day – by sunset there was an enormous wall of lenticularis layers reaching up to a very high altitude above the line of the hills, and stretching from somewher over Rossendale forest about 30 miles to the north down to a guessed 20 miles to the south.
Looking on time lapse satellite imagery the next day, you could see how from this front edge, the cloud layer (trailing eastwards from this front edge as the air lifted over the hills) stretched right across in a narrowing wedge which finally dissipated about the middle of the North Sea.
A lovely golden evening sky, Anthony. I love the bird flying off to roost :D
Peaceful and golden, a wonderful English evening, Anthony!
How lovely to catch the Little Orme so well dressed, Anthony. I climed the Great Orme once, long ago. :)
Well caught. Any later and you would have 'mist' it :)
Hi Carolyn, I climbed the Great Orme once, too, more than forty years ago! Was that before you did? – Lovely shot, Anthony!
Hi Beate, no I must have been there over 40yrs ago too! What memories your picture has brought back, Anthony, thanks :D
Actually the location is Llandudno Bay – Penrhyn Bay is beyond the Little Orme. Picture was taken from near where I have an annual early holiday (4 nights for 3).
Good 3D effect in your photo, Anthony. Is a distrail a disappointed contrail? :D
Hee hee – never thought of that, Carolyn!
That's great, Anthony. He must be a sun dog ;=)
Wish I had thought of that… nice one Carolyn….:+)
You have some excellent cloud photographs Anthony and I particularly like the cloud dog. My wife and I enjoy looking for shapes in the clouds.
Awesome! The sky is full of treasures just waiting to be found. Thanks for sharing.
What a great mixture of cloud nestled in the valley, thanks, Anthony.
On skyscapes like this you can just look and look and look and never finish seeing; thank you, Anthony, for your appreciation of the cloud in all of us
Thank you for the thoughtful comments. Clouds are a bridge between the earth and the sky, and this little valley was transformed by the presence of its towering visitors.
Lovely diversity of fluffyness!
