Rupert Murdoch's boney frame mounted on the four horses of conquest, war, famine and death? No, not this time but the intriguing yellow-reddish-tobacco filtered sky we're experiencing today.

Everyone enjoying it? One to tell our children / grandchildren / trapped sex slaves about isn't it?

Can anybody remember any other strange anomalies of weather or weirdness in their lives? Only the eerie after-light of the full solar eclipse about 20 years ago sticks out for me.

I gave up smoking 40 years ago, but I'll try some of whatever you have been on today......

In all seriousness, I can't remember if I posted this previously, but taken (not by me) when we were in Scotland last month.

At least we know what colour the sky is in Arkay's world now.

Well, this was the sky in East London yesterday - like a chain smokers fingers - but only after I'd eaten that "locally sourced" mushroom soup...

So, that was my first attempt at posting a picture from my mobile. Went rather well with the exception that it's horizontal instead of vertical or, as I like to call it, "Friday night vision".

Seeing the northern lights is still very much near the top on my "to-do-before-I-clumsily-trip-over-and-whack-my-head-on-the-coffee-table-and-die" list.

I work on an industrial estate near Canning Town and it can really only be endured with a substantial amount of booze in one's system.

The very north of Scotland is a photographer's paradise. Apart from the scenery, we have exceptionally clear skies by day with very little light pollution at night. Huge skies also, where you can actually see the curvature of the earth on the sea horizon.

I've seen the Northern Lights a few times, but there are all sorts of strange atmospheric conditions during the day also......short stubby vertical rainbows are common.

Pack your camera bag and spend a week or so up there sometime.

Sounds amazing! Light pollution is one of the main obstacles of getting good star trail and night pictures and even for my lovely sojourn in the Pyrenees it was an issue. Would love to take a trip up there to have a look. Mrs Arkay and I were planning a trip for this November but actually the cost of renting a car, hotels etc would could go to the continent for cheaper. So, we've opted for a bigger and better break away next year. Another time, maybe.

Red sky at night, Turkish Delight. Or something.

Does a red sky at night indicate that Reccep Erdogan has attested more secularists then?
