Winter Retreat

Today's image features another Winter sundown similar to this frigid scene previously posted from my trek to a nearby pond. The skies were quite different this time and the winds must have been conducive to bird flight, as there was a constant stream of our fine feathered friends heading southward. Perhaps the moderating temperatures had them on the move after the recent snow event.

As previously mentioned, the sky was full of birds, all heading in the same direction. I waited patiently until a small group was coming by to avoid a cluttered sky, which I felt would detract from the serenity of the moment.

The house in this photograph is reminiscent of a retreat, hence the title of this image.  Of course, those birds could well have been heading for a retreat of sorts as well. :-)

Thanks for visiting!
