Light thickens; and the crow
Makes wing to the rooky wood:
Good things of day begin to droop and drowse;
While night's black agents to their preys do rouse.
Today's WordPress photography prompt was to post a photograph inspired by a poem, song or story, associated with the theme of 'half-light'. Of course, being me, I did it the other way round – looked for a photo and thought about what it meant to me. I love photographing evening light, so I was spoiled for choice, but this one instantly brought to mind the first couple of lines, which I often say when I see rooks or their nests.
Of course, I couldn't remember where it came from, but Google was my friend, and turned up this rather dark quote from Macbeth, where he is planning dark deeds for the night. And the photo does have a threatening feel to it, I think, which matches the tone of the quote.
