Not very astronomical, but a fantastic shot nonetheless Jonathan. You've got some very nice vibrant colours, the detail is sharp, and the sihlouette is perfect!

Nice pic.
There was a similar 'Red Sky' down hear in Limerick this morning,
made everything look a bit pink for a while.

It's a view I know well Jonathan, from when I used to work in Lisburn and went up the back roads out of Templepatrick.

Great shot!

Yea, Seanie goes nuts when he sees clouds. :wink: :lol:
Great shot!,
Seanie, how about a cloud theme for the astrophotography competition, base it on "which image do you think would **** off Seanie the most" :lol:

OIC

So Seanie wouldn't have liked Friday morning's sunrise at all then? Here it is - note anti-crepuscular rays near the horizon....

I'm with Seany on this.
They're occasionally nice to look at, but there are only so many rainbows etc. I can look at without yawning.
I could also post up photos of my dog, Kieran, under the heading of

Ack Jonathan, that's just personal taste, not a put down.
There are many people who do appreciate them and this is what this section is for, after all, so there's no reason (other than because of nebulophobes like Seanie and me) not to do so.
I tend to shy away from atmospherics as I'm only interested in the more unusual examples.
Talking of which, I was diving off Rathlin Island yesterday, and when the sun came out I was transfixed with three independent layers of clouds zooming along at very differing speeds, from wisps of stratus rocketing past to cumulus moving relatively fast, whilst alto-cumulus moved sedately way up above everything.

As I said before...

Jupiter's red spot is an "Atmospheric Phenomenon".

The Earth is the prettiest planet in the Solar System.

Who would want to spend their lives on the barren Red Dirt of Mars.

Well, to a Martian it'd be home sweet home.
I mean, there are people who enjoy living in Lurgan and Banbridge, and they're much worse than Mars.
Mars has more atmosphere, for a start.
