It was a really grey day for most of yesterday, but about 8pm, it looked like the sunset could get interesting, so we headed off down to the coast road just as the sun was sinking below the horizon. We thought we’d missed the best of it, but then this happened:

You often get these cracking sunsets after a dull day as clearer weather starts to move in. ‘Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight’ is apparently due to the sun’s rays reflecting on clouds of a departing weather system moving eastwards, so a red (or pink) sky in the evening often does herald a finer day to follow as most of the UK’s weather comes from the west. And that was certainly the case today – wall to wall blue sky as I write this.
