Three Favorite Pictures: July 11, 2010
I've never seen a bald eagle in the wild. Sure, I've seen the one at the Roger Williams Zoo. But living in a zoon isn't nearly dignified enough for a bird this magnificent. He was flying near the Bear Mountain Bridge, near West Point.
This one happened when I was trying to take a picture of something on the shore just north of New York City. It was, as Bob Ross would call it, a "happy little accident." I've always wanted to take a picture like this. I've tried and tried. And then managed to actually get it by dumb luck. Who've thunk it?
I am a sucker for pictures of Sabine at anchor. I have scads of them. This was taken just north of West Point, near an intake for the New York City water department. I totally peed in the water, sorry citizens of New York.
