Hangin' Around

 This has been one of those winter weeks.  
A day or two melting snow, then back to cold.
It's windy, cloudy, and just plain icky.
Not a ray of sunshine to be found.

Here we have some fine friends hanging out talking about the next storm.
 "Do you see those clouds?  Another one comin' this way."

These lines (and birds) hang over a river near a bridge.  I drive by them most days in the afternoon.
Some days there are 2-3x as many just settin' for a spell, waiting for the sunset.
Today it would be a long wait, no sun, just clouds.

I'm taking out my camera again tomorrow in hopes that the new 
fluffy snow they promise will produce some lovely shots!
Until then, you can hang with my birds on a wire. :)

That's Scottish weather you're describing! I love that bird capture - brings tweeting into a whole new dimension.

I always wonder why the birds dont get electrocuted while sitting on those wires! Your weather report sounds like ours...I am still sore from shoveling two days ago and now it looks like I will be doing it again tomorrow!! sigh :( Stay warm and hope you get some great shots of the white stuff..

Great composition and tones. I love how the birds sit one next to another.

Beautiful! I love the lines and birds! We have a lot that hang out on the wires behind our house and we can see them congregating right out our living room window. ! We just got about 2-3 inches ands it's still coming down!

It is also a very good description of norwegian weather! This beautiful picture reminds me of Leonard Cohen's song: Like a bird on a wire... I love listening to all his songs :-)
