Low cloud and drizzle all day.
I'm in Northampton in the East Midlands.
My camera's out of batteries so the below shots were taken quickly on my mobile, it looked ten times better half hour before when the fluffy stratus clouds were more seperated and tinged with pink and reds.
Blimey, does Northampton qualify as East Midlands?
Yep Kate - where did you think it was?
Ed - just down the road why?
Well, Northampton is a strange place. The folk who come from the old parts of Northampton have an accent that is across between a watered down Somerset and Norfolk, very ooh aah me duck.
A large portion were evacuated from London to Northampton during WW2 and more came during the mid 70's recession with the promise of cheap housing, so that adds a bit of mockney to the accent.
Milton Keynes to the south is a lot more "home counties" with both posher and cockney-er accents.
A Northern accent definitely starts after Watford Gap (not in Watford) going into Leicestershire.
We definitely don't have a brum accent and get multiple ITV regions.
That's known as a "High Six"
Nothing recent but this was a few years back at Loch Creran
It was a nice evening sky here in Stoke yesterday, heralding the longest night - didn't take any photos though - now I wish I had've done. There was lines of pink coloured clouds streaking across a clear sky. I do love a good sunset, and this is the best one I've ever seen for myself.
Great photo, Wanderlust!
Funnily enough, when I posted this one in the Gallery earlier this year someone commented that they could see a face in the clouds...I dunno, I just like the blazing colours.
I like the Eruption of Vesuvius comparison Kate.
