    1. Thank you, Naomi 🙂 Yes. there are all sorts of variations of the saying. But the original quote is in the Bible in Matthew 16: “When in evening, ye say, it will be fair weather: For the sky is red. And in the morning, it will be foul weather today; for the sky is red and lowering.” Of course, that is in King James’ language, and I have no idea what it was in Aramaic!


    1. Thank you, Max:-) I took the photo from upstairs in the front of my house which looks over the rooftops to the sea. It is a wonderful view for someone so obsessed with weather and with photography!


    1. I know that volcanic ash can cause amazing red skies. Apparently, after Krakatoa exploded the sunrises and sunsets were exceptional all around the world for two years after the event.
