  6. Awesome! We can almost hear the sound of the birds and the ocean wave! Always wanted to take a group of birds in flight like this we either we're too late or they just didn't take off altogether :(

  12. It seems nostalgic to me, somehow. It's like a last flight over the waters. Am I in a melancholy mood today or is it just November coming near?!
