Outstanding, Dave. I know that your being in the Quad Cities area means you are near eagles along the Mighty Miss - is that the body of water in the shot? I love the eagle bending its neck to check on its catch. Totally cool.

Thanks Peter!


This is on the Mississippi at Lock and Dam 14 near LeClaire, IA. We usually get a large number of eagles with the season peaking throughout January. L&D 14 allows close access and probably some of the best eagle shooting ops on the upper Mississippi. On a good day you could get some good shots with your 70-300.

Thank you Prasad! The border is made in Photoshop. I just increase the canvas size by a few pixels at a time alternating between black and white. You must always increase the size by multiples of 2 i.e. if you what to make a 1 pixel line you increase the canvas size by 2 pixels. .... I have created an action in photo shop so I can create the entire mat in one key stroke.

Great image, sharp, perfect exposure and full of drama. Looks very good in the border.
