‘Red sky in morning
Sailors take warning.’
A fiery red in the morning sky is said to indicate a high pressure system (good weather) moving away, leaving rain in its wake.
‘A dappled sky, like a painted woman, soon changes its face.’
Mackerel skies (which resemble fish scales) foretell a changing weather pattern.
Looks like more rain.
What a shot, Debbie. Thanks for the weather cues as well.
Any time, John. I find myself fascinated by the weather, but I don’t think I’d have enjoyed the science courses leading to a meteorological degree!
I’m sure the eductional system woudl make it as dry and boring as possible.
Beautiful!!!! I love a red sky in the morning. I guess that’s because I’m not a sailor.
Thank you! Red does grab our attention, doesn’t it?!?
What a beautiful sky. Red sky in morning is a clue, for sure. I hope you don’t get any of the bad storms that are marching across the country.
Thanks, Linda. Yes, we’re expecting thunderstorms tonight (we’re on the southern end of the system). With the ground still partially frozen, any rain won’t have a place to run to so there could be flooding. It’s just this cyclical pattern of weather that’s been plaguing us all winter. Sigh.
Great pic! It might be rain, or it might be a giant mackerel from another world come to destroy the planet!!! Let’s hope it’s rain… 😉
Never saw any giant mackerels, FF, but we did have bucket-loads of rain, so I guess there’s some truth to the saying. Funny how that works, huh?!?
STUNNING photograph, Debbie! What gorgeous sky! And I love how you described this…”Mackerel skies (which resemble fish scales)…”
They DO resemble fish scales, you’re absolutely right!
Have a great rest of your week, my friend! XO
Thanks so much, Ron. I love watching the sky — it’s so changeable. If you blink, you might miss something interesting and beautiful; of course, if you take a picture too soon, you might miss something else. It’s sometimes hard to know when to hit that Snap button, as I’m sure every photographer has learned!
Do you think we’ve turned the corner on winter yet? I’m eager for spring and its warmth! Enjoy your weekend! xo
