A Flock of Rock Doves

This was taken a few weeks ago now whilst walking around the neighbourhood.

It’s not often I get to see a flock of birds flying around; especially when it comes to the way these rock doves were moving. They would move quickly with an occasional “stop” where they’d shift around rapidly before heading in another direction; At least that is how they appeared to be moving.

There are a few forms of this photo, but this is the one I’m happiest with. Some of the others are better, but I like how this one turned out. It’s less realistic and more “stylish”, but the rock doves are still clear and distinct.

It was great to see them moving around as it was graceful and beautiful. There was a great deal of power in their movement, but of course birds are.

This is my submission into Leanne Cole‘s TPM photo challenge for this week.

The theme for this challenge is “Powerful”. I’m submitting this image due to birds being powerful creatures.

I suggest checking out Leanne’s photography, as well as checking out what other people submit into the challenge.

You can find the challenges here.

I hope you enjoy.
