It's Sizzling Here!

Manchester Ship Canal during a sunset

The heat wave struck Britain and lasted for 3 weeks with reported highs of 33 degrees centigrade in London. Manchester was not spared, and towards the last few days of it, I was looking forward to the storm forecasted. The photo above is a sunset shot of Manchester Ship Canal with BBC and Lowry Outlet Mall in the silhouette to the right.

Wonderful glow in the sky and over the water. And love the touch of wings in silhouette.

That may be sizzling in your world, but in Texas we are in the 100's and no rain.

A beautiful shot but 33 degrees? That's barely warm wait 'til it gets into the 40s.

Nice Silhouette! 33 still sounds so much better compared to the Summer here in Mumbai.. it doesn't take much time to cross 40s....
