Stony Brook

It was quiet at Stony Brook when we first arrived, only two ducks and the soothing sounds of the flowing and falling water.

After a few minutes, however, Herring gulls filled the sky by the dozens and soon descended to seek out herring.

It was a quick burst of activity during a serene moment accented by the sound of falling water. It was loud and wild and after a few moments they moved on.
