Soaring Eagle

I was out with the wide-angle lens, searching for panoramic shots.  I glanced up and what did I see, a bald eagle soaring much too high for the lens on my camera.  Oh well, I still like the shot.  By the time I got back to the car for my telephoto lens he was up so high I could hardly see him.

It's a good reminder shot anyway. That blue sky is Brilliant.

I want a camera with lenses, but think it a drag to have to carry them around and change them. Maybe I better stick to the camera I have and learn to use it. I'm back to auto mode so my pics aren't so dark.

Gorgeous skies and what a perfect exclamation point the eagle is! I love it! And, yes, it is great reminder shot! Hope you have a great weekend!

The eagle was in the perfect place at the right time for this gorgeous photo, Martha. I love the deep blue sky, but it wouldn't have been the same without the eagle.

Good for you, Martha. I tried to get a shot like this once (just a hawk, not an eagle) and ended up with a lovely but empty blue sky.

You can tell it is an eagle; good shot!

Ginnymo said...

It's still a beautiful shot of him!! That's one bird I'll never see.

What a beautiful shot. I haven't seen a bald eagle in ages.

Carver said...

I like the shot too and what a sky to watch an eagle fly in.

The sky is beautiful -- I thought about adding Skywatch to my eagle shots (uncropped) but the sky wasn't very interesting. Just bright blue, no clouds (could have been a blue piece of paper). Yours has character.

We had a big wind/rainstorm this morning. Little bit of the big storm that hit up north.

A shot of an eagle is a shot of an eagle--most impressive. Have a nice weekend. Mickie

I wish I have a camera like yours. This morning, driving to work, I saw a hot air balloon far away. I didn't bother to take a photo, because my cameras wasn't good enough.

It's always great to see an eagle! Keep that zoom lens closer.
