Description

I took this image from my kayak while paddeling across Williams Creek Reservoir in Colorado. I was just taking a break and was simply drifting for a minute or two, when heard this strange loud sound above me - like a small jet slicing through the air - and when I looked up and saw an eagle circling pretty fast overhead. Luckily, I had my camera ready between my legs and lifted it up just in time to get a couple of shots of the eagle dropping down and shooting right by me, trying to catch a fish in the alpine lake. He missed and flew off. When I looked at the photos afterwards I realized that the attached shot actually looks like as if the eagle dropped right through the blue hole in the sky. What an incredible experience!
