Spirit of the Flight

Spirit of the Flight Poster

I have added one of my Bald Eagles photographs to my Zazzle store, Developing Nature. The photograph is called, ‘Spirit of the Flight‘.  The image shows a small portion of the flight pattern an Eagle had taken. This image was a composite of six photographs. In order to achieve my desired look, I had to push the white on each image, because even tho the settings and scene were exactly the same, the RAW image files turned out to have slightly different gray backgrounds. Laying the images out had created a hue of grays, which is not what I wanted.  I then added a section of the snowy background from one of original formats of an Eagle photograph to the background of this image file, in an effort to discard the simple white background color that I had created for each file. Now I have a photograph of how I saw the bird flying in the wintry sky with snowflakes falling all-about.

Here are a few of the items that are available in the shop.  There is an assortment of housewares, bags, office items, prints, and the photograph was added to some apparel too.

I will be adding more of my recent winter Bald Eagle photographs to the shop over the course of the coming week.


Eagles on a Snow Day

Since the kids were home today, we went to a known eagle area in hopes that we would see some eagles today. And we did. We must of seen at-least 20 Bald Eagles. It was wonderful. 

It snowed on us. It rained on us. The sun shown brightly for 2 minutes, so we got blinded today too. 

I took pictures of the eagles, landscape and a few Canada Geese that were around too. The kids, I think, provided entertainment for the eagles today. They had a fun snowfall fight. Or the birds were just watching our pup intently; trying to figure out if she was too big to carry away.

Here are a few snapshots of the pictures that I took today. I can’t wait to get the time to go through them.
