I've missed a few weeks but I'm back. It was cloudy and snowing on Saturday (Feb 8) but I decided to go to the Lock and Dam anyway because I haven't been down there in three weeks. I was glad I did because I got the above shot which I like a lot. The snow makes it different.
Now there are a bunch of Canada Geese in the cove where the eagles fish. The geese nibble at the fish until an eagle comes by and snatches it away.
This one (below) is my wife's favorite because you can see the blood on his beak but I'm not a fan of the pure white background. I wish this was against blue sky.
I went back again on Sunday when the sun was shining but early in the afternoon there were still enough clouds in the sky to reflect grey off the water surface. I've taken enough eagle shots now that I'm getting really picky. I like the shot below but again I wish the water was blue instead of grey.
Later in the day the clouds moved and the water was blue again. Much better.
Here is one with the dam in the background.
And here is a blue sky.
And here are a few more cool pictures in ugly grey light
