Notes

This was in Naknek, Alaska on Bristol Bay during the Salmon run in July of 2018. This was a new location, as I had never seen so many eagles, nor been in Naknek. The eagles were on the beach and cliffs/bluffs just waiting for the fish to be caught in the nets. It was quite amazing.
The bluffs along the bay were mostly brown and blended in with the eagle's feathers, making composition a challenge. Light was important for the eagle to show their brilliant shades of browns against the brown cliffs. Trying to get different expressions from the eagles and against the dark background took a fast shouter and steady hands. With the hundreds of eagles pictures, I took during this time, I love the fact that this eagle took light on this high cliff in the middle of these white wild flowers and green grass during morning hours.
