Words and pictures from the author of the Elizabeth Goodweather Appalachian Mysteries and the forthcoming And the Crows Took Their Eyes . . .
These look cold and wintery. I like the golden orange leaves showing on the last shot, just the slightest hint of color, other than gray.
Magnificent, Vicki!Crows seem to love sitting high on a tree, in the early morning, before moving on to the day's business. I wonder what kind of crow yours is. Here in Vienna, the tallest tree in the backyard is taken by a hooded crow every morning. Every now and then, a second one joins in. In the summer, they engaged in somewhat amorous pecking.
Love them!In my mind, the layers of hill and fog and hill and cloud and sky are some kind of metaphor for something. Probably many somethings, at various times.
i probably would have sat and watched that crow dance around the sky a bit...smiles...nice...
Vicki, you've shared some truly lovely layers with us. Some of the layers are airy veils and others are quite solid ground. The images join these natural features in beauty, and the crow gives its moving accent.Thank you! xo
The crow: such a nice layer added to the landscape.
So beautiful, thank you! We're missing those hills terribly and plan to be there around Christmas and see those layers for ourselves.
Vicki, I miss Elizabeth and Miss Birdie. I understand times are very tough in the publishing business, but is there any possibility of new book coming along? From earlier blog entries and the fact you haven't referenced any works in progress for some time, I'm guessing I know the answer. But I'm sure I'm not the only one whose hoping that we haven't seen the last of your characters. We'll also understand if you just don't want to address this any further. Just know that we miss having a new book.Lynne in GA
'who is hoping'
Ms. A - in spite of how it looks, the weather's nor wintery -- yet.Merisi - I think that the only crow we have around here is the American Crow aka Common Crow. I'm very fond of these intelligent birds.June -- metaphorical, indeed!Lynne -- this question deserves a post of its own.... tomorrow.
You live in such a beautiful spot of the country. We should all have as much fun as that crow.
These beautiful photos feel so otherworldly, Vicki ... and with the crow, they feel like a blessing from ancient times ... imagine how old those mountains are!
