Icicles hang from this lamp post while a bird heads home in the sky above.

Have a look at other skies through SKYWATCH FRIDAY.

It's a very Gothic scene. I do expect bats to appear. I'm still laptopless in blogland. Very annoying.

Linda said...

Such a moody night vision.
The bird is wonderful , swiftly flying through the darkened skies.

Marianne said...

The warmth of the yellow light and the ominous dark clouds and that little bird. Great shot.

Jacob said...

Very dramatic! One might think the warmth of the light would melt the icicles! Love the bird! This could easily be the cover for some spooky medieval romance novel.

"You...light up my life...you give me hope...to carry on." - sorry, just what came to mind. Brrr RE the icicles. Love the turbulent looking sky.

Chuck Pefley said...

This has the look of a scene from a horror movie storm scene ... just missing the jagged bolts of lightning tearing the clouds apart. Nice, Bibi!
