The Year After

One, plus one, makes one. For this "Skywatch" I've used two of my previous posts "Blanket of Fire" and "Alone" and brought them together. For more skywatch pictures click the skywatch icon.

In terms of beauty, this one plus one makes a perfect score of ten. Beautiful composition and very skillful editing. I've been trying to get a good crow shot for years. I probably need to try harder.
