A recap of spectacular January sunsets and sunrises at National Trust places

Guest - Wednesday February 01, 2017 9:25

National Trust rangers and conservation advisers have captured some incredible photographs of the sun rising and setting this week, showing the British countryside at its most colorful.

Speculating on the cause of the good sunsets, National Trust nature specialist, Matthew Oates, said: “One of the main positive features of winter in its sunsets, in this case generated by a massive area of high pressure to the east.

“If we had this weather pattern in summer it would lead to incredibly hot weather – the roads would melt and swarms of butterflies would cross the channel.”
