The Murder On St. Vrain Creek | Longmont, Colorado
Not too long ago came across a murder of crows along St. Vrain Creek in Longmont, Colorado. The St. Vrain is an urban waterway that crows use as a roosting site. On this cold December morning I was amazed by the number of crows in their roost. I have not seen that number before or afterwards.
As I approached the crows they swarmed around me and seemed to come from all directions. The image below captures the energy of the crows as they flew above the frozen creek and across my field of view of an urban industrial setting. I have titled the image...The Murder On St. Vrain Creek. This image has been selected to appear in The Crow Show 2017 at The Studio Door in San Diego. To me the image depicts the power of nature as a counterpoint to the dominating force of industrialization.
