Red Hot Sunrise, January 13th, 2015

We feature quite a few sunrise photos on this website over the course of a year. This was taken from the window of 'The Lookout' at 8.30 am on January 13th and was particularly spectacular.

"Red sky at night, shepherd's delight. Red sky in the morning, shepherd's warning" first appeared in the bible in the Gospel of Matthew. It is an old weather saying often used at sunrise and sunset to signify the changing sky and originally known to help the shepherds prepare for the next day's weather.

There is obviously some truth in this as it was snowing less than an hour later. The school at Synod Inn was closed early and the children sent home, so they would not be stranded. However such are the vagaries of winter weather that the sky was blue and the sun was shining by lunch time!
