Rain approaching the southern end of central valley in November. Hundreds of Brewer’s Blackbirds come together seemingly in the middle of nowhere for reasons known only to them. The lines of the pole and power lines, of the fence and of the soft, golden hills contrasting with soft blue-gray of the clouds in the approaching rain, and the bits of clear blue sky poking through. Everything came together to comment on the immensity of the sky, the atmosphere in motion versus the Earth and its creatures that live and die at the whims of the rain in these arid climates.
