Congratulations Bernie Lewis!
This spectacular image of a Bald Eagle was captured by Bernie Lewis on an Awake The Light trip to Alaska last summer. There was a great group of photographers traveling with me for a week aboard a private chartered yacht on the Inside Passage. We had several opportunities to photograph eagles from our boat, and Bernie nailed this shot perfectly.
This superb image titled "Got It" has garnered many awards for Bernie. It won a First Place for Best Bird at the 2019 annual New England Camera Clubs Council competition, was a semi-finalist in the annual 2020 North American Nature Photography Association competition, Image of the Year Honorable Mention in the 2019 Delaware Photographic Society competition, First Place Two Rivers Photography Club end-of-year 2019 competition, and Acceptance in the 2019 Merrimack International competition. Quite a list!
1/2000 sec at f/6.3, ISO 1000. Canon 100-400mm f.4.5-5.6L IS II lens set at 180mm on Canon 7D Mark II body, handheld.
