Description:

When I decided to pull my workshop group away from eagles fishing in an almost perfect eagle photography scenario in great late afternoon light and tell them that we were going to move to shoot into the sunset over water I almost had a mutiny on my hands. Thankfully everyone cooperated and the images made in this series were some of our best of the workshop. For this type of image you need a host of factors to align perfectly, tide, wind, light, and of course most importantly cooperative eagles.The colors you see in this image are all 100% natural and straight out of the camera, no color effects programs or manipulation used here, only slight cropping and sharpening applied.
