Love this Robyn Thank you for sharing this very evocative saying, and an even more evocative and beautiful suggestion for reflection at the conclusion of your post. I will certainly not miss the opportunities you offered to “remind us of the harmony between the natural world and human experience, connecting us to our ancestors and the ever-changing beauty of the skies above.” Tis the season for red sunsets here in California, so opportunities to connect abound!!

Lovely photos of the wonderful red skies.
Thanks for the blog.

Robyn the weather prediction is a lot of science and very complicated story. The colours of your images are absolutely amazing and may I say “Red in the night” then the shepard have a good night sleep and they are calm, brings back many memories of the people looking after the sheep in the fields. Very interesting and good information thank you Robyn.

Robyn, the old adage is well documented, and has always indicated potential for weather. I find some of the older wisdom to be the most reliable over time.. Thanks for the reminder and your insights.

Beautifully written Robyn, about a subject we all appreciate, especially during safaris in Africa. We look forward to both the sunrises and sunsets, and never give a thought to how the colors develop. I believe now, I’ll give more thought to what the weather might be, based on the colors.
