It was pretty chilly when I took this one, maybe -10C or so. As you can see most of the salt water bay was frozen over.

Hi Jason, many thanks. Love the bright days when I can boost the shutter speed a bit!

Speaking of the light, one thing that really helps an image like this is the fact that the snow/ice reflects so much light up onto the eagle. . This is why there aren't hard shadows on the underside of the bird. . This makes a HUGE difference when it comes to evening out the light on the subject.

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
