Took a trip out to the Washington Coast around Cape Disappointmentthis weekend. I wantedto take some landscape shots and possibly some bird life. I was shooting down a cliff face where some Seagulls and Petrels were mixing. Something spooked the gulls and they took off in a hurry...



I wasn't expecting an Eagle but here she came, driftingalong the coastal breeze as it pushed up the rock face
.



I followed the Eagle until she disappearedaround the corner



I hurried over to the edge but lost sight of it.. then from the corner of my eye,something caught my attention.



The Eagle was coming up the cliff face right in front of me....



I only had my 70-200mm lens on my camera and was kicking myself for not bringing along my trusty 300mm F4 for that extra reach. Oh well I was happy to get this, :-)

Too cool. That must have been quite an experience Kent. Standing there on the cliff edge with a cool ocean mist coming in and then this Bald Eagle soaring by. I'll bet you will never forget that outing. Even with the shorter lens that last eagle shot came out fantastic. One thing I would suggest is on your landscape shot, always try to make sure the horizon is level, which is easily fixed in post processing.
