Today I headed up Deerleap in hope of a mist across the Somerset Levels. The mist did not appear so I continued up the hill towards the village of Priddy. I was delighted to see a red sky developing over the harvested fields.
A beautiful dawn unfolded across the Mendip Hills.
The old rhyme tells us that a red sky in the morning is a warning of bad weather to come. But today turned out to be a glorious day with wall to wall sunshine.
The clear skies to the east allowed the light from the sun that was still below the horizon to illuminate the clouds over Priddy. It is sunny in the east then to restore the weather balance clouds must be coming in from the west.
