Stian Holmen - Golden eagle


I have tried several times to shoot golden eagle in snowstorm, but the eagle donA?t like snowstorm to good.
Spending days in the hide, fantastic condition with lots of wind and snow in the air, but no eagle… Hoping, hoping and hoping.
At least, this winter the eagle came! He got his food, and i got my pictures.

    Nice blizzard! The flowing snow really adds a new dimension to this photo.

    Nice one! The attention of the eagle and the almost monochromatic background give a very intimate feeling to the picture. Perhaps, I would go more for a wider frame in this case
