On Saturday the sky was a little hazy around us, though not so much where we live. When the sun began to set I noticed that instead of the usual glare through my windows it was blood red. I know the photograph doesn’t show that too well as obviously the camera lens doesn’t see what my eye does. But it really was red. Like the odd reflection you can see in the header image. One would think it truly was the end of the world.
Sunset in Red – March 28 2020
Whilst we are confined to #StayAtHome I will be posting photos from around my house and garden to hopefully cheer us all up.
It’s rather beautiful, maybe a sign that when this is all over the world will be a better one xx
better as in Governments are better prepared, we are all a little bit kinder and the environment has recovered slightly from our excesses xx
A nice thought, but I fear people will be more greedy than ever. Just thinking about all the panic buying and how people selfishly think only about themselves. Nature is having a breather from all our excesses though.
Lovely image, Jude. I saw a very red sunrise here a couple of days ago when I went out to feed my goldfish.
I’ve found that too. I see an amazing sunset but the camera refuses to capture it. Even so your photo is lovely, Jude.
I guess the lens still picked up the brightness.
Beautiful but scary with all that is going on
Must have been the haze. I have seen a red sun just once before, it is very strange.
That’s what it was like over here when we had the bushfires. Just been one disaster after another at the moment.
Yes, you’ve been through the wringer in the last months. What next? 🙄
Fingers crossed the rest of the year calms down.
Not a soul in sight! You live in a great place for social distancing, Jude 🙂 🙂 I thought you must be getting the daily post habit dusted off ready for Becky’s challenge. Have a nice day! Hope it hasn’t turned too ‘driek’. It hasn’t made it’s mind up yet here this morning.
Another gorgeous day here Jo. Even the wind has dropped. What to do though? More tulip photos and a walk around the lanes. And sow a few seeds…
Sounds very pleasant. We have rain on the way here so I’ll pop out for a breath of air. Food shopping later. Ugh! 😒💕
Do you still go to the shops? OH doesn’t, and only one person can go into the supermarket anyway.
Well, partly it’s exercise. Our nearest are 10/15 minutes walk. I went to try and get Easter cards from the newsagents and stamps from the PO but failed mission as the cashpoint was empty. Picked up a few groceries. Need to keep the little shops in business but it feels like a dangerous game these days 😒💕
Indeed. No cash in our ATMs at the moment, or at least the ones at the supermarket. Not many left elsewhere and no one wants to handle cash anyway now.
A lot of places here don’t have credit card facilities. We’re stepping back in time here, remember 🙂 Tipping down now, and we’ve just had a very tasty pea and ham soup. Knorrs, of course- not mine!
Making roasted butternut squash and red pepper soup here while I have the ingredients 🍅
And to stock the freezer 🙂 🙂
My freezer is on the blink so I’ve been running it down! Ready to order a new one once I have had the house decorated. All on hold now.
Ah, yes- I forgot. Just thinking about taking a brolly up top and ‘Singing in the Rain’ 🙂 🙂
Why not? Amuse the neighbours 😂
Less and less polluted UK means better skies to look forward to – this is so uplifting though going down
We’re lucky that there is hardly any pollution here, the air always seems clearer, not sure what the haze was, probably just sea fog.
Oh my goodness, that second photo looks like a beautiful painting.
Taken through a rather grubby window with my phone camera!
Doesn’t matter. I absolutely love it!
Thank you. Are you still in your she shed?
Oh, you bet.😁
The rapid ‘rebirth’ of nature in so short a time shows what could really be done if every country reduced its pollution output on a permanent basis. I think we wil be seeing lots of ‘new’ colours in our skies and seas, and I look forward to that.
Best wishes, Pete. x
Yes, reduce the number of flights, make them more expensive not cheaper and return to having less seats so travel is comfortable again. And stop all those excessively huge cruise liners swamping tourist attractions like Venice.
Beautiful sky, beautiful shot. And I agree with many of the comments, especially yours about reducing flights, cruise ships etc. ….
I can’t see it happening though, corporations will be wanting to make more profits once this is over ☹️
I wish you weren’t right ….
I’m looking forward to seeing more of your photographs!
What a beautiful sunset
It was unusual.
