  6. Lovely cloudy skies with birds massing for migration. Somewhere there is a toutch of sadness in that.

  30. Without the birds would the sky be what it is?

  31. lovely Merisi - the only problem is that it announces, as is happening here, the coming of fall. I don't mind fall at all, but that means winter is close behind - and being from the States, you know what Chicago winters hold! Will look forward to seeing your winters in Austria.

  47. What beautiful shots and always a signal of change. Whenever I hear the geese I know it's either they're leaving to a warmer place or coming back to one. Your other images are beautiful as well, very warm and welcoming. Looked around a bit.
