Serenity at Sundown
I had the distinct pleasure of witnessing an amazing performance by what I believe to be terns over the waters of Manitou Lake. A group of them were flying in formation and they appeared to be a mass of white flecks. When they turned and abruptly changed direction they literally disappeared from sight as there black markings blended into the landscape behind them. What a beautiful and memorable sight! I submit this pastel in honor of the event. It seems like a simple thing to comment on but it really was an awe inspiring spectacle.
