Tremendous shot of a Bald Eagle on those black rocks, Rick.
It is a pleasure to enjoy your classy work after such a long time.
The image is first rate both technically and esthetically.
Keep posting, my friend. Without gifted photo artists like you, this place has already lost its charm.


Hello Rick,
A fantastic shot with beautiful colors, details & pose. Very nicely composed & presented with a great POV. Great work & TFS. Best wishes!

This one is something special - I really appreciate the way that you have composed the image, and the pose of the bird and the nicely balanced exposure in diffuse lighting are all very fine. I would very much like to see this as a large print.
