Doom and Gloom

Even gloom can sometimes be strikingly beautiful as was this recent sunset that had begun just as the winter snowstorm arrived from the West. The birds had been very active at the feeders during the day clearly knowing that snow and colder wind was on the way. I took this photo just as the sun was passing over the river and it was so stark and so gloomy and yet so breathtaking and beautiful that I was glad to have captured it.

What a beautiful and peaceful shot. It was taken at just the right time of day.

Great job!

PS - I popped in from Marla's blog.
