Skywatch Friday - dark skies
Dark skies over Edinburgh's New Town on my walk home on Wednesday presaged Thursday's haar*, below. Edinburgh Castle is lurking in there somewhere.
I love livid summer skies lit up by the sun. I have a feeling this may have been shaped by 1960s editions of National Geographicwhich I used to devour as a child. The complete National Geographic is now available on DVD-Rom - sounds like an idea for a birthday present to myself.
*haar - thick fog, often afflicting the East coast of Scotland.
