Red Sky Warning – Original SOLD – Prints Available
Red sky at night, sailors’ delight.
Red sky at morning, sailors’ warning.
The common phrase “Red sky at morning” is a line from an ancient rhyme often repeated by mariners.
This old saying has a scientific explanation. It relates to moving high and low surface-pressure weather systems, and the way that the colors in sunlight are scattered differently by dirty and clean atmospheres.
The rhyme is a rule of thumb used for weather forecasting during the past two millennia. It is based on the reddish glow of the morning or evening sun, caused by haze or clouds related to storms in the region.
“I seen the red sky up in the morning.
I seen the low tide slipping away
I do believe I’ll take the warning
Taking my leave to stay”. – Johnny Lang
Night can come at any time but morning only once. When the stars are too far to follow, you’ll know to remember tomorrow’s Red sky morning, Red sky warning.
I think you can see why I titled this painting “Red Sky Warning”.
Do you heed the ancient rhyme?
