Evening, Upper Atmosphere Flight
As the setting sunlight was casting a rosy hue on the slightly overcast sky, I spotted a bald eagle very high up and out across the marsh.
Considering the lighting, I had little choice but to go with a silhouette on the eagle. Wish he was in closer but then again the sky made for a somewhat interesting canvas I thought.
Oh Phil, this is stunning! Perfect silhouette against that beautiful sky – love it!
I’m happy you liked this eagle flight shot Maggie!
In my experience, silhouettes work best when you can identify the subject by its shape–and this one works beautifully.
You are right, and at first I wasn’t sure about this one but then figured most everybody would pick it out as an eagle.
Thanks for looking Mike!
That is a great canvas and just enough of an open mouth to catch the outline of the beak. I like it.
I’m so glad you brought that up about the slightly open mouth. That’s exactly what convinced me to go with his photo.
I think that very small aspect makes the shot here and I’m happy you agree.
Love this silhouette
Sometimes the silhouette can work out, glad you liked this one.
The colors in this are really nice. Like a watercolor, with his silhouette so striking against the sky.
I liked the muted sort of pastel colors too. Thanks very much for checking this out.
