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.
