Cumbrian Skies

The Cumbrian sky can be so stunningly beautiful.  One evening last week I drove to the coast to give a talk.  On the return journey there was a terrific storm with the sky being lit up in a most spectacular way.  I knew the road was liable to flood but was told it only flooded in the dips.  How was I supposed to see the dips in the dark?

Then yesterday I drove to the peaceful villages of High and Low Lorton and returned via the Whinlatter Pass.  In the afternoon sun the hills were clothed in the most striking autumn colours and the sky was a vivid deep blue with fluffy clouds looking like sheep in the sky.

Only a divine hand could have devised such beauty.
