SKYWATCH--shades of Edgar Allan Poe

Can you hear the crack of thunder and see the flash of lightning? There wasn't any, of course, since this is a winter photo and those phenomena usually don't occur in the winter. Perhaps this crow, perched on a very gnarled tree, reminds you of this previous post of mine?

This does remind me of something Edgar Allan Poe might have used as an illustration for one of his stories or poems.

See other skies, some poetic, some not, at SKYWATCH.

Reminds of Hitchcock's The Birds too. Eerie and dramatic. Could only be a black and white.

Alors comme j'avais une petite minute je viens de relire "Le corbeau" mais j'aurais besoin de plus pour mieux le saisir.
Parfaite illustration.
Quelle ambiance!
