photos taken of two differents sunsets down on Newport Beach - June 2012
The old adage in North America is:
- Red sky at night, sailor's delight,
- Red sky at morning, sailors take warning.
- Red sky at night, shepherd's delight,
- Red sky in morning, fisherman's warning.
We know this old folklore has been around for some time and might have some truth to it. In Matthew 16: 2-3 Jesus replied to some Pharisees and Sadducees that wanted to "test" him by asking him to show them a sign from heaven. "When evening comes, you say, 'It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.'And in the morning, 'Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast. You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times."
It might be hard to see in the bottom photo, but there are three birds flying to the left of the sun.
