Bald Eagle Taking Off

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Skyler Russell

The dark, low-lying clouds in the background, the golden evening light, and the impressive, statue-like rocks in the foreground already make this a great image. But what makes this image captivating is the fact that the eagle taking off from his perch adds motion to this otherwise static scene.

Location: Kodiak Island, Alaska
