Written by Richard AnkersOctober 21, 2017October 18, 2017 Yellow Author’s note: For a few hours, the UK was bathed in the strangest yellow light. I tried my best to capture it, but it changed by the second. Amazing really.

Great words for the pic! Reply Thanks, Dorinda. 🙂 Reply You’re welcome 😃 Nice photo! I tried to photograph it too, but failed. I couldn’t do the scene justice in pictures. Instead, I used it as a writing prompt on my blog here: https://tessmgarfield.wordpress.com/2017/10/17/a-day-on-the-edge-of-a-hurricane/ Reply Thanks, Tess. 🙂 It sure was a strange sky. Reply Reblogged this on Stories from the Heart and commented: A great picture of the sky I wrote about recently. https://tessmgarfield.wordpress.com/2017/10/17/a-day-on-the-edge-of-a-hurricane/ Reply It really, really was eerie and I think you’ve captured the mood very well:) Reply Thanks, Sarah. I was sat writing in my bay window and my iPad kept changing colour LOL Reply I wandered outside as I was sitting at the computer and as the sky turned that leaden orange colour and it steadily got darker, I wondered if it was the apocalypse finally arriving! If it was we both survived it. I think that’s good? Oh definitely! All I could think was – bugger – I’ve only just published my first book! If we’re the only two left and I buy a copy it’d be a best seller. That’s some bonus. 🤔 There’s always that:)) It’s those ghosts ! Reply 👻 Reply Pingback: Sunday Post – 22nd October 2017 | Brainfluff Thanks, Sarah. 🙂 Reply Strange. We had yellow skies here for a few days when the wild fires were sending up smoke and ash. Very eerie. You captured the odd color well. Reply It was the fires in Portugal that set ours off apparently. Reply The reach of the smoke is amazing, isn’t it? Kind of scary. It sure is. Great photo and words, Richard, and strange hues, for sure. We experienced the same here with the northern Cal. fires. The sun was a vibrant orange shade, but it was more eerie than beautiful. 🙂 Reply It’s a strange going on, Lauren. Even weirder when folk say it’s happened all over. You just don’t expect it. Reply Fantastic description! jaundiced light…amazing! Reply Thank you. It was. Reply I absolutely love this piece of yours, Richard. It has got this ‘mysterious atmoshphere’ that I associate with things that exist in the sacred space – somewhere between ‘life and death’ – on the edge of both, in between. I loved the end of that piece and you have no idea how much I can identify myself with those words which bring back in memory my own experiences (that are not just a ‘literary experiences’ but the real ones). Actually your work has a little to do with my recent post called ‘The Artists Are The Only True Eveangelists of Collective Unconciousness’ – and you are just another example – with the things you write – how well you match the atmosphere created by Visual Artists such as Henrik Uldalen or Gabriele Viertel or hundreds of others. It is something that Artist have ‘sharpened’ trough years devoted to the cultivating their Art, something that ‘Mere Mortals’ seem to forget about…Have a look at my blog and tell me how you liked it – but most importantly, have an enjoyable and inspired rest of the week. Reply Thank you for such kind words, Anna. I really appreciate it. Reply Lovely, Richard. With all the hurricanes, fires, and earthquakes it’s no wonder the sky changes color at times. —- Suzanne Reply Too true. There’s some strange things going on.
