Description

Thousands of swallows built mud nests underneath a bridge on Benton Crossing Road overlooking the Owens River and emerged en masse at sunset for food. I was able to capture and freeze them in flight using a fast shutter speed, wider aperture and higher ISO. The black and white really emphasized their dark silhouettes, the snow capped Sierra, and the peculiar lenticular cloud hovering above the horizon.
