Skywatch Friday - Salisbury Crags
Another 5 pm sunset seen from the office. The difference yesterday was that the sunset was all in the east. Weird, but it made a great backdrop for the rocky outcrop of Salisbury Crags. The Gazeteer of Scotland tells me that the Crags are the "glaciated remains of a Carboniferous sill, injected between sedimentary rocks which formed in a shallow sea some 340 million years ago". I find that rather wonderful.
If you manage to get this photo to enlarge (I never can with my own photos, tho I can enlarge those on other blogs with no problem - technical advice welcome!) you might see that the Crags are pimpled with people at one point. A great place for skywatching.
Hundreds of other Skywatch photos are at the Skywatch Friday site.
