A Sight to be Seen

By Lillian  
The starlings going under the pier...
and another larger lot gathering even more as they fly around

a 20 minute spectacular scene from Brighton Pier

I will always remember this truly magical evening

I like the balance to this. The heavy and solid left-hand side of the frame balanced by the multitude of small elements to the right - not only the myriad of birds, but also the small windmills far out at sea.
Have a GEA.Smile

A terrific shot showing nature versus the modern playground

A double whammy for me - firstly a superb shot of a huge murmuration, so well captured - congratulations.
Secondly, I lived there 50 years ago, havent been back since and was startled to see a wind farm - how times change.
