Red sky at night, shepherd's delight.Red sky at morning, shepherd's warning.Beautiful photos, Andrew.I recently debated this with someone at work who was convinced it was sailor's warning. Glad to have found another shepherd-er.
I'm not familiar with the metaphorical shepherd you're alluding to there, folks. But the pictures are nice.
"I think these fall into the category of a shepherd's warning."Don't try to graze sheep in a busy city 'cos they'll just get run over?
Good one Cameraface, way to leave us all hanging on your words and photos, well, did it rain?
I'll be safe sitting and gazing at your pretty pics without a welly or brolly within reach ;)
I think it works for shepherds, sailors and farmers MD. The shepherd must be the original.Reuben, a morning sky like that is usually a warning of bad weather. Round up the sheep into shelter.Brian, a sheep on your lawn would save you watching Michelle mow it.Jahteh, it did not. It turned out to be a perfect day for a just shorn sheep.Jayne, there must be some truth in these old sayings, but in this case no.
Not sure how I missed these, but they are gorgeous!
If I slept later Daisy, I would miss seeing such things.
Whenever I wish I was young again, I am sobered by memories of algebra.
