I saw these birds from the car as i was driving through the country one grey day and thought it was such a peaceful sight. I tried to get close without startling them but of course was unsuccessful as they were fairly alert. As they began to fly away i snapped as many shots as i could thinking all the while that my chance was lost as they heard me coming. When i got home and looked over what i captured, this particular scene stayed with me for a long while. I'm rather pleased with the overall mood of it as i kept it as close to the atmosphere as was present that day. It was rather moody and I loved the chance to do something a bit different than the bright whimsical ones i've been doing. I used just five colors. Ultramarine blue, Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna, Cobalt blue, and Alizarin Crimson.
