PIC OF THE WEEK: 08/15/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA • James River near Varina
Notes: My favorite images are the ones that tell a story. They need no words to describe the scene. This image seems to fit into that category. The Eagle’s intense focus on its potential meal is evident as it glides into a descent. Since the sky was overcast that day, I held back the triggering of the shutter, until the subject passed below the skyline. So instead of a dull smoky-gray background, the image was given new life with the vibrance of greenery behind this majestic bird of prey. When the weather does not cooperate, I have to get creative. Exposure adjustments for the Eagle’s white head and tail feathers were taken into consideration. A slight acceleration of the shutter speed compensated for that, preventing over exposure of the highlight details. This is a win-win situation in photography, because a faster shutter speed is also needed to capture the action with sharpness and clarity. Making the most of what I have to work with at a given moment, turns out to be better than I expected.
