      Bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), photographed in Kachemak Bay- Cook Inlet - Kenai Peninsula, Alaska. 

      @getolympus OMD EM1 MK II - Olympus 17mm f/1.2 Pro Lens - ISO 400 - 1/2000th second, f/6.3, handheld. Creative Post-Processing in Skylum Software Luminar 2018.

      I love photographing eagles with wide angle lenses because it's a perspective you rarely see. I also felt the need to do some creative post processing on this shot because it just felt like it should be B&W.

      Great capture....I used to live in Wasilla and one year I headed down to Haines for the Bald Eagle festival.....none of my shots were exceptional. This is an exceptional shot.

      Truly exceptional is right. I've never seen an eagle shot like that in my life.

      How did you pull this off without scaring the eagles away? Were they hungry and perhaps photographing you as their next meal?

    • ScottBourne

      Lots of experience, patience, and knowledge of eagles - as well as a little luck.

      So Scott, that 17mm lens that has been freaking me out... It's actually equivalent to 34mm on a full-frame dslr, right? So at least the eagles weren't 3 feet in front of you, they were 6 maybe?
