What a difference one week makes. Last Saturday was cold, windy, gray and overcast with a fair amount of ice and Eagles in Sabula. This week, sunny, little wind, not much ice and unfortunately not many eagles as well.
I had asked a friend of mine who lives in the area to text me if there were any Eagles in Sabula today. I didn’t hear from her but I did receive an e-mail from my friend Andreas Exner that he was going to Sabula and Green Island and perhaps we would run into each other.
Jeanne really wanted to go as she had missed the previous two trips and wanted to see some Eagles. She watches the Decorah Eagles every day and wanted to see some up close and personal. Well they were pretty few and far between. There were some in Sabula but they were pretty scarce and very skittish,
We saw maybe a half a dozen Eagles in Sabula but the really neat thing was running into Andreas. We swapped lenses for a little and talked about our passion for photography. Turns out he likes to bike as well so another common thread. He is an Engineer by training so he is very precise and thoughtful in everything he does. I on the other hand am very imprecise and do not think much about anything. 🙂 So I’m sure I would drive him nuts. But the world takes all kinds doesn’t it.
But I enjoyed our conversation and he had some wonderful tips for me on how to improve my shooting. I had my ISO set too high today but it worked out okay. We decided that we would shoot together in the next couple of weeks. Stop by his blog if you want to see some exceptional images.
Have a great rest of the weekend and thanks for stopping b;y. Be careful.
