SkyWatch Friday Season 4 Episode 29
We have had many grey skies recently but it has been dry if a little chilly. Last Sunday there were some clouds hanging in the sky.
A little later the sun broke through and transformed the mood of the late afternoon.
The sun gilded the tops of the Scots pines and enhanced the pink buds of the Silver Birches. Since this photograph was taken the plantsmen from the Forestry Commission have planted Scots pine saplings in the furrows. These replaced the earlier little trees that disappeared without trace. Inevitably some have already been uprooted.
Two days later the sky was afire as the sun set. Poplars and oaks stood starkly skeletal in the wonderful light.
