But Brighton Pier is a wonderful place to watch the Starlings return just before dusk to roost. I failed miserably to get any decent photos of them swooping the loop. But Starling 'Murmurations' as I think they're called can be spectacular to watch. There were just a few hundred of them when we were there last month but it was still exciting to see.
Hi Ann, great contrasts, love the post!! Brighton is ok for a days visit, we met some friends there in the Summer. We were going to go there the Saturday before Christmas but it was too wet and cold. I hope sometime we will get up your way to really appreciate the beauty although you always show it so well in your photographs, that I feel we are there with you!. We are visiting Portmeirion, and surrounding area in the Summer with Snowdon so hopefully we will see some beauty there.
Love both sets of photos but know where I would rather be!
What a contrast between your pictures. I have to say a prefer the wildness of Scotland if I had to choose between them. Watching the starlings must have been quite an experience especially watching them from the Pier.
Wonderful contrasts, and like your other commenters so far I would also choose Scotland. There is something very desolate about winter 'entertainment', isn't there? By coincidence I've just posted about a similarly forlorn bit of Edinburgh.
So impressed by your camera, by the way!
so beautiful, i enjoy your photos so much ann, it's all very interesting to me. have you seen the murmation video? it's an incredible capture of a huge flock of starlings.
Wonderful contrasts, thank you. Very useful to look at things like this now and then, and really appreciate what's on your doorstep. And also very refreshing to go and visit somewhere so different! One day I may go and visit the North East again, and remind myself what it was like (drier, no mud, and sooooo cold!).
