“Sort Sol” – # 2

November 23, 2014

The marsh near Aventoft, October, 2014.

 SORT SOL (Translated into English: Black Sun).  Very large numbers of migrational starlings gather in the marshlands in spring and autumn when they move between their winter grounds in southern Europe and their summer breeding grounds in Scandinavia.  Large flocks form huge formations in the sky just before they decide for a location to roost for the night.

    That large version of the photo really drives home how many starlings there are, Truels. Seriously impressive! And are there really people standing there on the left hand side?

      There are MANY starlings in those flocks. And yes: It’s two people standing over there – admiring the show – like us😉

    Flotte billeder af et betagende naturfænomen.
    Jeg er glad for at du har sat større billeder på, så får man et meget bedre indtryk af sceneriet.
    Meget fint Truels.

      Tak, Carsten. Det var en stor oplevelse. Som jeg vil gøre igen – og håbe på (sort) solnedgang næste gang. Og så er det jo lidt spøjst, at jeg boede de første ca 20 år lige midt i dette hvert for- og efterår. Uden at ænse det en smule. Havde vist andet at tænke på…… (!)

      Kiggede på hende igår🙂 og gav en lille kommentar. Det er så fint, at du har lavet denne s/h blog som supplement. Kender du Leanne Coles “Monochrome Madness”????

    Absolutely amazing, I’d be in awe if I saw that in person.

    I’d also probably not want to be standing underneath the starlings, if you know what I mean.😉

    Det nærmeste jeg har sett her er noe vi kaller “kråketing”, men det er ikke i nærheten. Den flate , danske horisonten gjorde det hele tydeligere. Elegant!

      Elegant – tak – hm, det er jeg ikke vant til at blive betegnet med😉
      Men det er nok også fuglene du mener! Og DE er fantastisk elegante!
