I’ve just returned home from another amazing and very successful “Bald Eagles of Alaska” photo tour. This was my fifth year running this tour and it just seems to keep getting better. Weather in Alaska is always a concern and for the most part we had great light to work with. The temperature was cold but the great light made up for it. On the next to the last day a strong storm moved in making the conditions unsafe to be in the boat and we had to cancel the last 2 shoots. Everyone was fine with that since the first 5 days were just great with everyone on the tour shooting 2000-4000 images or more per day.
We again found large numbers of wintering bald eagles in the beautiful coves and bays in the area and had non-stop action photography. You can dramatically increase your skill of capturing birds in flight and create an amazing eagle image portfolio on this tour that would take a lifetime to achieve in other locations.
