I had arranged my schedule to arrive in Homer a full day before the photo workshop began to get my bearings, work on my gear, etc., after having been so busy in recent weeks. I knew there was a “intersession” day between the prior week’s workshop and my workshop but had been told it was full. So I was a bit surprised to get a call last night telling me when to be ready to go out shooting today. Pleased, mind you, but surprised.
The drill is… if it’s a clear morning, we’ll leave the hotel at 8 am to be out where the eagles are in the bay by sunrise (we’re that far north here that sunrise is so much later). If it’s not clear, we go out at 10. The morning is basically spent doing flight shots. Then a break for lunch etc. and then out again for more flight and perch shots.
I have said all along that if I could get one, just one, really killer shot from the trip I’d be happy. And if I could get one really killer shot a day I’d be thrilled.
I think I’m about to be thrilled. These are all just from this morning. I’ve hardly even looked at the ones from this afternoon yet…
