"Moonrise" Pinkey Bethyl

Pinkey Bethyl from San Francisco emailed this postcard.
Here's what I like about this image. At first glance, it looks like a foggy view of a city, but then you realize those are trees not buildings. There is a mysterious unfocused image hovering behind the fog. I can't make it out, but it looks something like a head or face. Birds, maybe crows or ravens, are flying through this enigmatic landscape. There are some dark areas near the bottom, the whole composition looks smoky or foggy, dreamlike maybe. And then there is the moon. The sad faced, world weary, aspirin-like moon. It all combines to make a moody intriguing image.
