into the gloaming


The brutal cold of this last week has come packaged with sharp blue skies and glorious sunshine. At the end of the day, when the shadows and clouds step into the scene, it is enough to take my breath away. Tonight Jigs and I got outside just as mother nature's evening show was starting. The rowdy gang of crows that lives in these woods was putting up a large ruckus and filled the sky as they swooped from tree to tree. No doubt they were arguing about who got the best branch to view the sunset.

I love this light and what it does to the clouds.

Attack Crows?? We have a huge flock that camps out at the Midtown McDonald's here in KC. I'd throw them a chicken mcnugget but I'd be afraid I'd get swarmed.

Beautiful town. I love the low winter sun and the drama it creates with long shadows and clouds.

Your neck of the woods certainly is beautiful.

(Steel Ice Band certainly makes a heck-of-a-lot more sense!)
