Sometimes moments happen in life that are just so amazingly beautiful, they feel like a gift.
I’ve been recently asked to contribute to Surf City Family for Wordless Wednesdays. I’m so excited for the opportunity and I decided to take some new pictures to contribute, instead of ones I have previously taken. So I headed down the the beach today with a few ideas on what I wanted to photograph.
Little did I know that a surprise was waiting for me.
After about 30 minutes of photographing a bouquet I brought along with me, I started to head back to the car. I noticed a huge gathering of seagulls on the sand so I decided to sit for a moment to watch them.
That’s when it happened.
All at once, the seagulls took to the sky, flying directly over me and circling all around. It was incredible. To see so many birds all flying together right over my head (and not getting pooped on) was breathtaking. I tried my best to photograph them, but I was so in awe that I didn’t even have a chance to change my camera settings. It was though the universe had stopped and the only thing in the world was this beautiful scene in front of me. I felt peaceful sitting amongst the chaos and the only thing that came to my mind was, “This is a gift.”
Thank you. It was beautiful.
