Rage Against the Dying of the Light

The sun dropped behind the building clouds, and then came the birds. Thousands of them were swarming as if in homage to the day’s last rays of sun.

It is moments like these that I can only hope to capture but a glimpse, a slice of the moment that was made up of sights, sounds, light, and warmth. While setting up for this shot , I needed to just sit down and take it all in for a moment before I pressed the shutter.
