An eagle flaps its wings along the beach in Anchor Point, Alaska, along the Cook Inlet coast. That day at the beach dozens of eagles flew up and down the coast. I was in awe of these beautiful creatures. None of my images from that day could truly capture their size, grace or beauty. I selected this on for the leading lines contest because of the lines between the sea and sky and beach and water. I like this image because of the sun's glimmer on the sea and I feel like the lines lead the viewer back to the eagles' wings. For me, it was a magical moment!
