I wanted to capture this magnificent bird in its power and strength. They see crystal clear images at 100ft away, fly at speeds up 200mph, fly higher than any other bird and will catch prey that is a far greater weight than their own body weight. Their wings also operate with immense strength and power.
I was interested to see if the composition worked with the bird flying into the picture and the central focus being on one of its large wings. I mixed coppers and a touch of gold to reflect the sun bring out the richness of the wings.
