Just a couple of days ago, whilst cycling to Branton Lakes, the cloud formations and the combination of low winter sun created some exquisite panoramas. Here’s an example of what you can see…just get out there, and enjoy!
Back in mid-August 2015, I posted some photos of stunning Powburn sunsets.
Well, I’m not sure if you saw the amazing skies around Powburn, looking towards the Cheviots, last night? Margaret noticed them first at around 6.15pm and called me to comae and take a look. They sky was ablaze with ochres, reds, crimsons and deep blues. I took a few shots from my garden and then jumped into my car to rush around to the lane that runs from the A697 just near the Manse towards The Branton Lakes. I had to work quickly, as the light was changing moment by moment. By the time I’d snapped my last photo, at around 6.30pm, it was all over. The sun had dropped behind the hills, leaving the Cheviots illuminated by a grainy, yellow-grey late twilight.
Rain, rain, go away!
Come again another day;
Little Arthur wants to play.
Like so many people across the country, we woke up in the Breamish Valley yesterday morning (Wed 6 January 2016) to ongoing, relentless downpours. Sooooo:: wet!
Just one mile south of Powburn, the A697 was closed at the Playwell Road – Glanton junction, with a diversion in operation through Glanton village. And, in Powburn village, there was also disruption to traffic owing to flooding. However, the road was just passable with care.
