The Fourth Day – A Picture Blog about the Sky

For no reason, other than the need for an enigmatic title, I start with Genesis, Chapter 1, verses 14-19. I am too old to consider anything other than the King James Version. Without changing any words I have tidied up the punctuation a bit.

And God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,” and it was so.

And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also.

And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good.

And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Of course the sky is blue because of our atmosphere. But the weather makes some or all of it black or grey or white; and at dawn or sunset we can have red, orange or yellow tints.

While some blogs will be issued just once; and a few will be updated once or twice through the year; this one will be updated many times to show how the sky changes.

It will be a picture blog in chronological order, with some pictures identified by date or location.

I may sneak in some pictures with skyline landscapes round the edges.DSCN4406.JPG

A dull day to start November.

I couldn’t resist the first chance of an aeroplane trail.

Still early November. Another Sunny Day. Clouds and Aeroplane trails.
