June Sunset

Sunsets, sunsets and more sunsets! Hope you like these montages of sunsets over the past few weeks, They have been stunning, too early for me to be up at sunrise at the moment so sunsets will have to do for now!

As the Sun is low on the horizon at sunrise & sunset, sunlight has had to travel through more of the atmosphere to reach us.

When light hits the atmosphere it is scattered, particularly when dust, smoke & other particles are in the air.

This scattering affects the blue part of the light spectrum the most. So by the time the sunlight reaches our eyes there is generally more of the red & yellow parts of the spectrum remaining.

Dust and smoke particles commonly build up in the atmosphere beneath high-pressure systems, which are generally associated with dry & settled weather.

Another weekend! This week has been so long I thought we were never going to get here! Today was such an icy start with crisp leaves and white hard grass. I was surprised that the lake did not show more signs of icing over as it was bitter cold.

Wolf Moon

The first full moon of 2022 is the Wolf Moon, which was on Monday 17th January 2022.

This full moon was so named because villagers used to hear packs of wolves howling in hunger around this time of the year. It’s also known as the Old Moon, Ice Moon and Snow Moon, although the latter is usually associated with February’s full moon.

I took these images on the morning of the 18th at around 8:15am. They look stunning especially with the Minster in the background.

What a sunrise! Part II

*EDIT*

I’ve just upload a video of the sunrise from Wednesday.

What a sunrise this morning! It was freezing cold with ice and fog but the sky was lit up by the most colourful sunrise! It looked like the sky was on fire! There was even a rainbow at the bottom of the hill.
