Incredible Red Sunset in Durham April 26th 2020

Just had this photo sent of the incredible sunset of 26th April. The sun was setting under a shallow cloud cover and it produced this red sunset and double rainbow. The cloud produced the first measurable rain for 2 weeks, in what looks destined to be one of the driest Aprils on record in Durham.

The driest April was in 1938. This month only received 2mm of rainfall.

Amazing sunrise from Wharton Park 8th December 2019

Some amazing shots this morning of the sunrise from Wharton Park, with Durham Cathedral silhouetted against the fiery skyline. The day soon turned into a blustery one with showers and gusty westerly winds.

Pictures here are courtesy of Kevin Edworthy. Many thanks Kevin for allowing me to use these.

Durham Cathedral Sunset September 2005

This was one of my favourite weather photos from Durham City. It was taken on the way up the steps into the Durham University Students Union building (Dunelm House) in New Elvet. The sun was going down behind Durham Cathedral.

That was the last I saw of the sun that night as I disappeared into The Durham Beer Festival being held at Dunelm House.
