A Cool And Breezy Afternoon

I grabbed this shot from my car on my way home from Walmart. I had to go out and buy some additional cold remedy. Yesterday was hit with something, came home early, then today it blasted me good. No fever, just congested, and a headache that won't quit. It spited me, because the sky was a hopping this afternoon, filled with clouds, and the colors were great. I played with this one, cut back the colors and added a dash or so, and maybe a pinch of sepia. I like it, and hope you do too. Sitting here sipping on my coffee,waiting for the cold tablets to kick in. I hate being under the weather, and needing to take off work, but in my line of work working with the elderly, I do not want to risk passing something on to them, especially now during flu season. It doesn't look like I am going to be making it in to work tomorrow again.
Fabulous capture. Love the birds in flight and the warm tones of the whole composition. It has a hint of Spring to it, although I'm sure there's quite a bit of winter to get through, despite what Phil said. I hope you shake your bug. I am fighting the same thing. A cold, but not so common.

I love the subdued colors. It's beautiful. The clouds and ground really draw draw the eye in to a vanishing point.

The birds flying against this stormy back ground is very clever, the white touches of their undercarriages just stand out so well. Hope you feel much better in the morning!
