This is a very depressing picture. I think colour would brighten it up a bit but still to capture so many Wattle Cranes together is really fantastic.
Because the photo is black and white it is almost open to interpretation of how the enviroment actually was.
In my mind the scene is very bleak. The shore of the lake in the foreground looks muddy and almost depressing with the cloud coverage. (I mean all of this in a good way.)
