Farne Islands

Beauty is not what the eye can see, but what your soul tells you it is. Still recalling it from the smell, the sound and sights of a land which can still claim itself as virgin, untamed and primitive as it was before human intervention. My eyes have seen much more than just some birds, seals and wildlife. I have experienced nature again, have enjoyed the sweetness of the sea and have posed my blurry sight on the impossible and forever unchangeable distance between the sky and the sea. For this I thank every person who have made this possible, whoever you are: Thanks.

Puffins, Guillemots, Razorbills, Eider Ducks, Artic Terns, Black Headed Gulls, Gannets, Shags, Herring Gulls. Thank you for your existence. What a bird has may be considered the utlimate form of freedom, but for them it is just the only way they have to survive. Hence human, please, do not deprive a bird of it’s freedom when blinded by greed. You may think that is Love, or pure appreciation, but it is not, it never will. What we have is enough. What we have is enough.

“Sometimes I have to remind myself that I have to remind myself that some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are just too bright, their song too sweet and wild. So…you let them go.”

~ Stephen King
