It's not the birds. It's the motion they show.

It's not the motion of the birds. It's the suggestion of motion, mirrored in the clouds.

It's not the suggestion of motion. It's the feeling of being there. Sand in the toes. Salt in the nose. Wind in the hair. The dialogue between the crashing waves and the trickling of sand.

It's not the feeling of being there. It's the hints of memories that are brought back of better times, healthier bodies, missed opportunities and bitter internal struggles fought alone on a backdrop of unforgiving, uncaring and untamed nature.

It's grey. And it's great.

Ah, this is just brilliant. I didn't vote the challenge, and had not seen it before. Wonderful image! Reprise it for the "Horizons" challenge, LOL.

Marvelous, Paul!! Didn't get around to voting this challenge, but this would have been one of my faves. All the bands of texture, movement, tones. Parallel universes.

Didn't get chance to vote on this challenge. This is the first time I've seen this image and I have to say, I love it.

I love how you use motion blur to create a natural painterly look. The dappled birds are my favorite part.

I would love this without the birds so the bids are a bonus. Very nice.

Beautiful. Love how the birds are mimicking the clouds... or the clouds mimicking the birds? 9

Abstraction with a hint of realism creates a wonderful image.

i like how the bird formation almost follows the same curve as the clouds

The curvature of the bird formation is more of a star than the clouds, but it's a wonderful image.

I'm not sure that the clouds are as important to the shot as the birds, but an image I like all the same.
