Scenic Flight

Scenic Flight is of a Bald Eagle from one of the new trips I went on in 2016, to photograph Bald Eagles in Alaska. While I expected to see Bald Eagles, I didn’t expect to see them in such a scenic surroundings. This provided us the opportunity to get flight shots that were more than just blue (or sometimes grey) skies as the backdrop. We also were able to use a few spots to photograph that we were actually above the river, so instead of looking up at the Bald Eagles we were actually looking down or straight on at them, which really gave a unique perspective.

 

This image is unique from most of the others I’ve captured on this trip because in addition to the mountains, the sky was a beautiful pink / purple colour that really makes the Bald Eagle stand out.
