"Blackbirds like small priests walked in the silent fields." --Niall Williams

This was in my chair when I got home today:

Carl Cook photo

If you scroll to the bottom, my photo is the one of the two crows silhouetted in the full moon. It is GORGEOUS.

Browse Carl's entire website for more stunning shots and lots of interesting lore about corvids. If I were an editor for a publishing house, I'd snap him up. What a gorgeous book it would be - his photos and the accompanying quotes, facts, and his own anecdotes and essays.

What a gorgeous photo! Happy belated birthday. :)

The one of the crow through the distorted, foggy window is also stunning beautiful. How fascinating to focus on crows as subjects.

Wow. Beautiful. And Happy Belated Birthday! I had no idea. I hope you had a great day.

Jason, I love that one through the window too. It was hard to choose between all of them, and the selection was limited, too, so I was happy he had a print available of the moon shot.

Thanks, Joni - it was back in February but this was a delayed gift. On the day itself I got another gorgeous photo - of my horse! And a gift certificate for books, so it was a lovely day.
