Merrill Creek Bald Eagle

At a distance of about 1,000 Metres...Here is the Bald Eagle of nearby Merrill Ceek Reservoir. Can you spot him?
This is about as close as folks can get from the top of the dam where there is a telescope....Any closer than this with my editing would have produced nothing but fuzz and blur...sorry ....Where is Julie Brown when we need her, with her 600 mm Cannon lens :-)

OLYMPUS E-510 1/160 second F/6.3 ISO 200 180 mm

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
