Morning Eagle

Uploaded by: NicholasLee

Wednesday March 21, 2012

Poulsbo, WA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I got extremely lucky on this shot, for almost always I have my wide-angle lens on for landscapes, but today I decided to go for a different composition so I put the telephoto on when all at once this bald eagle flew by me, a ways away. Of course, the settings for a landscape shot are a lot different than a action shot so as the eagle turned towards me I switched to Aperture priority and set it to f5.6 at 200 iso, and fired away as he flew right over me. All in all, a great morning!

About NicholasLee

NicholasLee

Hi, as of February, 2012 I'm 14 years old and have been taking pictures for a long time, but only really got interested in photography in about April of 2011. I used a Sony DSC-HX5 point-and-shoot for about 7 months, but now I use a Canon Rebel T2i DSLR and what an improvement, especially in low light high ISO performance! I'm always open to suggestions, comments and questions, and I hope you enjoy my photos!
