Pop up

The birds had been huddled together on the beach bracing themselves against the wind when suddenly they popped up and floated in the air. I’d been standing there watching them and looking at the sun go down on the water so when they went up, I took this picture. It wasn’t until later when I looked at the image that I saw the couple across from me taking a picture of the birds from the other direction. Somewhere out there is a picture of the birds in a different light with me in it taking a picture of them. The lighting is difficult with the sun coming straight at you, it turns the birds and the couple on the beach into silhouettes as a result. I think it works and I enjoy looking at this image. It would look good hanging on the wall in a doctor’s office waiting room or an ocean-side restaurant for instance. Image for sale in gallery.
