After the dreary slush the other day... this morning, Nature offered the most spectacular Art Show I think I have ever seen! It was extraordinary. After the morning mist lifted, the air was crystal clear. The sharp morning light revealed the railing on the bridge over the river to be all covered with glistening spiderwebs, one after another. In the background, still the burning colours of autumn. On the other side of the river, the spider webs just went on and on and on, along a rusty iron fence outside an old factory buildning...
Further along my walk, I got another spectacular show, with music. Hundreds of birds for some reason gathered high up in the treetops. Much too high to enable me to see properly what kind of birds; and my camera was also not able to zoom them in. I had to just stand and watch, and listen, and wonder. The birds were fluttering about all the time, high above me, their movements reminding of butterflies in the summer, and it was sometimes hard to distinguish them from the falling leaves. I've never seen anything quite like that either. It gave the impression of a praise concert - maybe a last gathering before moving south for the winter?
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let the sea resound, and all that is in it;
let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them.
Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy;
they will sing before the Lord, for he comes,
he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
and the peoples in his truth.
