Fire in my sky

I have looked at the view through my kitchen window above the sink for thirty five years.  Yet with every passing cloud, never mind season, the view changes. The view for the last few nights has been  kinda chilling as the rain battered the glass and the bushes danced a highland fling to the music of the wind. Even typing those words made me shiver. Not all summers were like this, I needed to find the proof.

Sunset lights my sky with fire.

This morning I realised I had 89 photos of the ‘my sky at night’ never mind anything else. How to pick just three…. I need a very long pin. (You can click on the photos to enlarge them.)

I think I was into skies in 2008… Still it is much safer than playing with matches! 😉

The topic Fire was chosen for the Loose Bloggers Consortium* this week, by Will. Now why not flap your wings and fly on over to discover what lights the fire of our other active members: Maxi, Maria/Gaelikaa, Maria SilverFox, , Padmum, Paul, Ramana, Shackman speaks, The Old Fossil, & Will Knott. OCD writer (is the youngest of the group, and you know what they are like – leave the homework until the last second – I’d give him until Sunday! 😉 ) Delirious (May not have reached her new home base yet, in China) & Anu (seems to be on sabbatical),

* For any new readers, the Loose Bloggers Consortium is an eclectic group that stretches from India (5) via Europe (3) and on to the US of A (5) with an age range from twenty-something-year-olds to the younglings on the verge of 70. We each take a turn to suggest the topic for the week.  The aim is that we all write without consultation, and post on the same day.
