Hey Folks,

Welcome back! I’ve just returned from a photo trip to Haines, Alaska, photographing bald eagles along the Chilkat River, in the famed Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. Had an awesome, awesome trip, met a lot of cool people, and got some nice images. Anyone wanna join me there next year? The bald eagles are a real spectacle, to watch and to photograph.

All the best,

Cheers

Carl

      Nice take off photo. Tough birds those eagles.

      Thanks Pete. I agree, they can be tough. They move fast, and they’re often fighting and scrapping all over – makes it hard to get a nice clean shot sometimes.

      Cheers
