Brown Pelicans

I needed some inspiration so I went to my usual spot at the beach.  It was nice.  No people.  Wind, sun, sand, surf, and dunes for as far as I could see.  Peaceful heaven.  I started randomly taking pictures and before I knew it, I was capturing the sea gulls in flight.  I am usually quite awful at capturing them but this day I was getting some good shots.  As I was looking through the view finder to see if I could locate any more gulls I noticed a dark shape moving my way in the sky and this shape was moving FAST along the dunes.  I kept my camera targeted at the mass and as it got closer I realized it was a flock of brown pelicans.  When I could see that they had become separate forms I started clicking.  It was really exciting to capture them as they flew right over me and beyond winging their way toward the tourist town miles down the strand.  As I said earlier, peaceful heaven.
