Yes,  a pleasant location,Richard - it's a golf course but at that time no golfers  but it's also public land and they don't mix too well,we had Ben the dog up there one day and a golf ball went inches past my wife's head (hit by a 14 year old out with his 'fun golf' playing family -  we didn't go again and in the local  paper this weekend a lady wrote in who had been hit in the chin with a sliced shot and the golfers just carried on, so, as they say 'something should be done about it'  one ot the  other but not both.

All a bit disappointing ,Martin. I think people were expecting skies like they have been after some of the other worldwide volcanoes.Turner's famous paintings  and Rembrandts for instance  which featured the multicoloured skies showed the world what Krakatoa (1883) did for sunsets.

Here's what Turner saw http://www.kenbushe.co.uk/html/colour_and_light_paintings_aft.html

I see that scientists are studying the old Masters to see the results of volcanic ash and also in relation to the global climate.
