Hey Folks,

Few creatures express the wild quite like a soaring bald eagle does.

This photo is presented as a memorial to the late Jean Keene, good friend and a dear lady, from Homer, Alaska. Jean’s love for the eagles gave bird lovers, wildlife lovers and photographers from all around the world a lifetime of amazing opportunity, but more than that she showed by example how to care about the creatures with whom we share the earth.

Thank you Jean – may you Rest in Peace.

    The light is absolutely stunning here, Carl. Amazing image.


  2. Wow. The scenery and soaring eagle is fantastic but add that golden low angle light on the wing and boom it’s truly spectacular. Envious my friend, envious.

    Nice tribute, and gorgeous image Carl. Dan and Guy have already raved about the light, but damn!
