This painting is of Callanish with a Story Telling of Crows landing there for the night, ever heard of that term? It sounds better than a murder of Crows! ::coolglasses::

There's something of a story, not sure how scholarly it is, about crows and ravens once getting together to discuss the punishment of a member of one of their groups. When they got together, it was called a StoryTelling (because they were telling the story of the accused members' crime). When they decided that he was guilty, they killed him, and thus began the phrasing of a "murder of crows."

That's the story I've heard anyway, can't vouch for it's legitimacy.

How beautiful! It has a very particular feeling to it, something calm and peaceful about it, but sort of uneasy given the sky. And fascinating, with Vesca's explanation! Makes you really wonder what these birds are up to :wink2: Great work!
