Nearly Wordless Wednesday

We can only appreciate the miracle of a sunrise if we have waited in the darkness. ~Author Unknown

‘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.

    • 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.

  1. 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
