Red sky at night ---

By Nettles  
Sorry I've not been around, blame our visitors, fund raising and then hours spent curtain making. My life is very hectic at the moment.
I will still have to click and run a bit, so I do apologise in advance, I will do my best.

This shot was taken a couple of nights ago on my way back home from walking the dog.
The sky was glorious and the telegraph poles stood out so well against the orange sky.

Thanks for stopping to look and for all your comments and clicks for my Castle Howard shots, all of which I really do appreciate.

Mick is right about telegraph poles, mostly; here they are an important element of the landscape with their rather quirky organisation. Lovely capture of the red glow, too.

Amazingly, given your title, the adjacent photograph in my list of favourites is "Shepherd's Delight" Smile

It all flows quite well, and I wish I had sunset like this! Very rarely here does this happen. LOL, I think you need to rearrange your priorities so you have more time on EPZ. So to start, no more curtains for you!
