Today's London Sky #RedSun #Ophelia

DC Editor Adam writes…


We had some pretty dramatic skies here in London today. Did you catch the red sun? A side effect of Hurricane Ophelia, with tropical air dragging in dust from the Sahara (according to the BBC) created this red sun over Jermyn Street around 5pm, just after my Village In Piccadilly walk…



Earlier in the walk, the sky above Jermyn Street turned an orange-tinted sepia…



…with the light inside Wren's St James's Church throwing some eerie shadows…



As dusk approached, some more strange effects were created as I headed eastward to lead a tour at Tower Hill. With the sun getting "under" the clouds before dipping below the buildings, the Thames took light as the eastern sky looked angry with a rain that didn't arrive…






… before going out in a blaze of glory…
