Golden Flight

For years I tried capturing the majestic golden eagle in flight. Not so easy. Their cousins, the bald eagle, are a touch easier to locate and observe. But with goldens, you need perseverance and luck. I feel extremely fortunate to have witnessed this great bird so close. Taken in the great state of Montana.

The Road Home

Sunset Road

This scene was one of the crucial moment every photographer makes during their trip. Is it time to go home? Has the action died down, and extreme weather boxed you in?
