Bald Eagles at Sunrise

Photo quote for today: " A photograph does not speak, it does not smell, it makes no sound, it does not move, it is just a two dimensional piece of paper, but a good photograph can do at least one if not all of the above." -Eryk Fitkau

This image is from a page in a book of self-published work that I did on Maine back in 2006. When I arrived, only a few minutes before sunrise, both birds were in total shade. At that time I was thinking it was going to be an uneventful morning, then the sun made it's appearance and illuminated just the head of the Eagle facing my direction. With light being such an important part of any image, timing can sometimes mean everything to an image.
