Cranes heading south

Cranes heading south
This is the kind of image that not is fitting a screen on a smartphone/Iphone. Just because, I could not resist to post it on Facebook and of course I did not got many likes. Maybe the image is not deserving any likes neiter. But anyhow, I like to try it on you guys. :D

The photo is taken one day when thousands of cranes were passing through on their way south, one flock after another were flying over us. There is also a sound when they are coming and the whole spectacle is impressing. It is one of those moment in life, when it feels important to watch and experience, and a photo will be of second priority. But maybe this photo can communicate some of the feeling even to someone who were not there?

By the way, it feels as I have lately been watching the sky a lot, sometimes with the camera but more often without - the changes of the light and the colors of the clouds are very interesting.

Anders, I like the scale and the fact that the tiny line/curve stretches up to the edges of the frame on either side which stretches further beyond in our minds. What cranes are those, Common or Demoiselle cranes? If they are Demoiselle cranes they may be heading towards India :)

They are the common (or eruasian) cranes. Comming from Scandinavia and probably going to northern Africa or staying somewhere in Spain over the winter.

That bright patch for some reason seems to be a passage to another world . And that seam created by tiny birds seems to be the last good omen sight of a utopia that is on the other side

Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside
