"Look for rain when the crow flies low." ~Anonymous (American Folklore saying)
You may not can tell but there was a soft rain falling when I took the photo. There were two huge crows sitting in an old tree in the backyard. This one sat atop the tree fluffing his feathers and spreading his wings before I went and got my camera. Because the day is so dreary and dark the original photo was mostly in silhouette so I just went with it when editing the shot. The shadowy tree is an Oak and is in the foreground. I transferred the photo to my iPad and used two different apps to get the desired look. I used one called "PhotoToaster" to get the antiqued look, the vignette and the soft focus frame. Then I used an app called "LensLight" to add a filter called gothic.
It's been raining here all morning and as I write this post I can see some sun light starting to come into the bedroom window. The sky is still overcast dreary and I'm sure the rain isn't finished with us yet. It's funny how you can go days and days or even weeks without rain and complain that we need it so bad but when it finally rains, all you want is for it to stop so you can get outside.
Happy blogging and wishing everyone a fantastic Tuesday.
