Good catch of the birds flying over. That August sky looks a bit like sky here today. No geese flying over though. ;-)

Happy Sky Watch!

Mojo said...

Pretty angry looking sky. Seems like even the birds don't wanna hang around it!

Susie said...

it's funny I saw a group of those guys flying over at work today.

I love the way you captured the birds, its as if they were hightailing it out there because of the impending rain.

Bunch of birds and that gray-blue sky behind makes your photo very atractive. Thanks for sharing!

Luiz Ramos said...

Beautiful sky and birds.

Susan said...

The flying birds are lovely against the grey clouds: I think I like them better than if it had been blue sky! A lot of us are sharing shades of grey this Friday, roll on November...

Happy SWF!

Nice set of pictures. Great photos. Like the birds!

Debbie said...

Okay, all the rest of your photos are in color so I assume this one is too but it almost looks like a black & white. Neat effect, perfect timimg on the ducks/geese/birds.

Louise said...

What a wonderful SWF photo! I love the geese.

I was looking around a little more and do not envy your heavy rain! What a mess!

Luiz Santilli Jr said...

Before or after rain, sky is fantastic!

Have a nice weekend,

Thank you for visiting My Manila, Darla. That cityscape was a little too much to take in, huh? ;D And now that I've seen your blog, I can understand why!

I like how you captured the birds here.
