On the same misty morning mentioned in the posting directly below this one, I captured this shot of the old gravel road to the Italian farm house we’re living in. It wasn’t until I pulled up this image on the computer I saw all the birds within it. All my attention was on how the road appeared to disappear.

In the An Italian Connection photo essay.
