Landing Gears Down

As I continue to edit some older images captured in the Chilkat River Valley in 2008, I ran across a sequence of images of an adult Bald Eagle preparing to land in the snow:

This sequence was captured along the Chilkat River. As I vividly recall, the temperature that day rose to a sweltering 9F! And plenty of snow falling at times, and a nice blanket on the ground. I’ll have some more snowy eagle images ready to share soon.  :o)

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 1D Mark 3 body
  • Canon EF100mm-400mm, f/4.5-f/5.6 IS lens + Canon 1.4x TC, shot at 460mm to 540 mm
