I have three images for you today. The first eagle images of the season. Even though the weather was lousy for photography I decided to go out and see what I could find.
What I found was a few eagles sitting around the Lock and Dam in the trees. None of them were fishing while I was there but there were a couple of them flying over the park. I had to shoot at a high ISO (7200) and with the gray sky most of the shots were heavily back-lit so it made it difficult to get any quality shots. Still these are eagles and I will never pass up a chance to photograph eagles no matter the conditions. 🙂
This reminded me of a married couple. Even with my hearing impairment I could hear the eagle on the left screeching. As the other eagle finally came to the tree where she was, the screeching intensified. I’m guessing he was in trouble for something 🙂
An interesting story to tell, which again shows why I love photography so much. After yesterday’s post I received a text message from my good friend Rick. He was commenting on the barge image and said that he knew the guy who was piloting the helper tug. He wondered if I would mind if he sent him a copy of the image. I told him if his buddy would email me I would send him the high-resolution original image and he could print it to whatever size he wanted.
When I got home there was an email from Jeremy, the tug boat Captain. He thanked me for the image and invited me to come along and ride with him and photograph a locking process. WOW! What an opportunity. Hope to get that done before the barge traffic ends for the season.
I took a lot of images but there were very few that I would even process. It was raining intermittently as well so it was not a day for outdoor photography.
That’s it for today. Back to work for me. I enjoyed the 5 days off.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
