Saturday PhotoHunt : Gather

Today is the final PhotoHunt for 2011, which means a new set of themes for next year!  Yay!  Today's theme is "Gather"


I took this picture back in September, not far from my place there's a cement company.  These towers/silos contain the various components that make up cement, the trucks pull up underneath and the cement is loaded into the truck.  Did you know that a cement truck has 90 minutes to deliver its load before it starts to harden?   Anyhow, I don't know why but on this day the birds decided to gather on these two towers, it was almost like a scene out of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds.

Great shot, Dani! I love how blue the sky is, too! I would love to have my bedroom painted that color. LOL

This a great photo Dani!! It does remind me of The Birds. Where do you get your themes from for your photo hunt?

Love your photography. Great shot of the birds. I did know about the cement as I have a BIL who used to drive a cement truck when he wasn't farming.

Thanks for the comment on my blog and have a Happy New Year.

A murder of crows?

We saw a similar scene in Chattanooga when we were there. The black birds were all circling an old warehouse. It was spooky!
