Volcanic Sunset


There are two interesting things about this pair of photos.

The first is, of course, the effect of the volcanic ash diffusing the sunlight into some rather spectacularly smoky rays … during the day, we really can’t see it in the sky. The second thing is the total lack of vapour trails (bearing in mind we live under the Heathrow flight path) … puts into perspective just how little control we have over our natural environment, and how far we are at nature’s mercy. (Best be kind to her, then 😉 ). It has been bizarre and peaceful to have clear and silent skies for the last week or so. I like it. Less planes, please.
