This is a shot that needs a big print, or big monitor. The sailboat in the distance; the fisherman in the foreground. I don't take pictures of the sun; I take pictures around the sun. ;-) I like it because the human aspects are rendered tiny in this huge field of nature's play.
The title of this image was chosen for the feel of the capture, not the kind of birds that are taking flight here. I was driving along a backroad in Vermont, when I noticed this dead tree full of birds. I pulled over and readied my camera, and when the birds took flight, I ripped off a series of 10 or 12 shots in a rapid burst. This is my favorite of the lot.
