Yesterday afternoon Portsmouth and the large parts of the United Kingdom looked like a scene out of the new Bladerunner movie. Or even Terminator 2, although it wasn’t Judgement Day, it was thanks to Hurricane Ophelia.
The BBC explained that the orange tinted sky and the red-tinged sun was caused by the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia dragging in tropical air and dust from the Sahara. The dust has caused shorter wavelength blue light to be scattered, making it appear red.
Of course you guys were on hand to capture the moody sky without the need for a filter. Here are just a few of my favourites.
