I have been trying for three years or better to get American Bald Eagle shots I can be proud of. A few years back I was able to get a nice shot at the Horicon Marsh in Wisconsin. The lighting was horrible so I chose to add some Photoshop effects to artsy up the shot.
Well…A trip to Iowa based on a tip from fellow RB’er John Absher. So me, Tim Denny, Zandra Denny, and Jeff Weymier hopped in a van and headed out in hopes of finding a great eagle photo opportunity. We shot…we scored!!
This is one of probably a dozen or so eagle shots I can now be proud of. One more subject off the bucket list, although I will be heading back to Iowa to take another crack at some more shots.
