Morning Sky

On my journey to work from Motherwell to Mount Florida, Glasgow, I change trains at a place called Newton, near Cambuslang. While waiting for my connection I saw this lovely sky. At Newton the sky always looks quite dramatic.

I was wondering why, and think the reason is that there are no buildings in the area to obscure the view. This may be due to the fact that from 1873 to 1979 Hallside Steel Works was situated there and the land may still be contaminated. 

The area around Cambuslang had a number of steel-making works, but most of them were closed in the 1970’s and 80’s.

    A gorgeous sky Jane! I often wonder why some places have consistently more dramatic skies than others. One guide suggested coastal areas have less cloud cover because of stronger winds. Not totally convinced though.

      We get nice skies in the morning and evening when it is not cloudy. It might be due to northern locations and colder climates.

      I cannot remember seeing such dramatic skies in London but then again there are so many buildings it is difficult to get a good view of the sky there.
