Weird Sunset - Oct 1995

This pic was taken by Susan from the back of her house on High St looking west. The roofs are of houses on Bank St.

Ian Robertson took a picture of the same sky, but seems to have used a little artistic licence (jiggery pokery) with it. See picture #195.

I can guarantee that Ian Robertson has altered his pictures. My mum, Annie Ratcliffe, has even better pictures from that night!

I like this photo best - even the obvious "fiddling" of picture #195 - doesn't spoil the charm of this one of Susan's.

I have just realised that I forgot to put in the word not! Ian hasn't fiddled with this picture at all. If I had the pictures that my mum has I would put them on here to prove it!!!

Naomi - if you look at Ian's picture (picture #195), it's a sunrise rather than a sunset - when did your mum take the pics?

I remember seeing this sky from Invergordon. It was very early in the morning. I remember thinking how beautiful it was and how lucky I had been to witness it. (and also wishing I had my camera ready!!)

Regardless, it's a beautiful photo and I wish I'd seen it!!

Naomi, spoke to your Mam yesterday, she took her photos at night.

Does anyone know what causes the sky to appear like this?

Does anyone know if this is a regular thing in the north as I would love to take photos of this.....
Added by Catriona Watson on 14 March 2006
Catriona, it could well be, but it's the only one I've seen, and it only lasted about 20 mins.
