Every year a spring migration of alewives takes place in rivers and streams along the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean. A charming mill village named Stony Brook in Brewster, Massachusetts plays host to such an event. During a recent visit there, I filmed the short (and blurry!) time-lapse below. I created an optimistic and rhythmic piece of music to accompany the video, that I felt was reflective of the nonchalant pace at which these intrepid fish move up stream. Predatory gulls lurk at the water’s edge, and yet they swirl carelessly in large pools like the one pictured as though it’s a commute to work. Enjoy!
