You sure live in a gorgeous place, Hugh! Good for feeding the soul!
I was so lucky to have got that shot of the sun rising over the bay, Terri.
Not so nice here today, though, with storm Eunice causing lots of damage.
Well, take good care, Hugh!
What a stunning photo! One of my favourite places is Rhossili Bay and your image reminds me of some of the beautiful sunsets, I have enjoyed there.
Thank you, June. I know Rhossili Bay very well. One of the best beaches in the UK. I’ll have to get down there sometime and see one of the sunsets it offers.
I believe that Rhossili Bay has been in the top ten beaches in UK, Europe and the World! Well deserved, in my opinion. I’ve only recently discovered your blog, Hugh, and I find your blogging tips extremely useful. Many thanks!
It has indeed, June. And I can see why.
And thank you for following my blog. I’m glad you find my blogging tips posts useful. I’ve lots more planned.
The oil refinery on fire again, I suppose…. Or is that just one of your horror stories!!
It was freezing cold that morning, so that fire would have defiantly warmed up my hands had it been there. But I was blessed with this lovely view from Mother Nature and a pair of warm gloves.
Perfect I hope Swansea has fared better than some courtesy of Eunice’s ministrations ?
We’ve survived, although lots of trees didn’t, and nor did our back fence. But most importantly of all is that we’re all safe.
Wow Hugh!! What an amazing picture. It’s beautiful. I’ve never seen a sky in person that looked so low. The only part of that poem I remember is red sky at night sailor’s delight.
I’ve always referred to it as ‘Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight. Red sky in the morning, shepherd’s are warning.’ It could be because I am from Wales, where there were many shepherds once. Not so much these days, but I love the different takes.
Thanks so much, Lea.
What an interesting difference Hugh. I grew up on Long Island Sound and spent summers at the beach. As a kid my grandparents had a boat that we would go out on, on the weekends. My grandmother is the one who always said “sailors”, and that makes sense for folks living there.
I’m sure shepherds needed to watch the sky also. It makes sense either way. I love stories like this.
It sure does make sense, Lea. I expect there are lots of different versions from all over the world.
Beats the hell outta me but it sure is pretty! 😍
Thank you. Mother Nature was smiling at me that morning.
I love sunsets… maybe even more than rainbows. And this one is one of the most stunning sunsets I have ever seen. Fantastic photo, Hugh. The mix of deep orange to light cream yellow framed by these present grey is amazing!
I like sunsets too, Erika, but not as much as sunrises. This was a sunrise (rather than a sunset). Living where I do, we only get to see sunrises. Our sunsets are out of view because of the position we live. On the morning I took this photo, it was freezing cold. I had to put my gloves back on immediately. I don’t tend to see the summer sunrises as they are too early (even for me).
OMG, of course, you wrote it! I was so enchanted that I did not even read the title. Sorry, about that. But thank you that you risked freezing your fingers off for the photo.
I am lucky that we see both sunrise and sunset at any season… theoretically… I usually don’t see the sunrises in summer either… lol
No worries, Erika. We are blessed that we continue to see the sun rise and set every day.
Indeed, Hugh 👍
What a way to wake up. A cuppa and that view! Toast with butter!
I was on the beach walking the dogs at the time. Breakfast and bed were distant memories.
Amazing colors! Thank you for sharing😁
You’re welcome. It was a fantastic sight.
If you manage to see anything other than grey clouds and grey sky today it will be a miracle.
Agreed. And Friday looks like a day to stay indoors under the duvet.
Stunning photo, Hugh. That sunset! ❤
Ahh, but it’s a sunrise (my favourite time of day), Colleen.
Thanks so much.
Ohhh, that’s even better! Red sky at morning, Sailors take warning. ❤
We say – ‘red sky in the morning, shepherds are warning.’ I love the different takes.
How cool! I grew up next to Lake Michigan, so that makes sense. ❤
So beautiful, Hugh.
We are blessed, Cathy.
Gorgeous. We stayed in a holiday cottage on the other side of that headland in 2019 and saw some spectacular sunsets.
That’s Mumbles Head. It’s a great vantage point for watching sunrises, especially during the winter months.
Phenomenal – could look at that for hours!
Such a shame it only lasted a minute or two. You have to be in the right place at the right time.
