Photographer's Note

Let me ask you few questions:
- how many times you felt like your photo-journey was a disaster because of the weather?
- how many times you've seen beautiful places but cound't get your camera out because it was raining heavily and there was no point really?
- how many times you were soaked and questionned youself why didn't you pick up another hobby???....

Well this is how I felt when I took this shot. It was a beautiful scene, nice place, loads to pohotograph but the weather... DISASTER! And my camera is not water-resistant, so I was really conscious to take it out. But I got a fantastic reward for my sacrifice - it's the Golden Eagle.
The Eagle is one of the best known birds of prey in the Northern Hemisphere. It has a wingspan averaging over 2 m (7 ft) and up to 1 m (3 ft) in body length. It can attack its victim with a speed of 160 km/h - can you imagine such speed? Beautiful model!

Anyway I took this photo in Glenveagh National Park Really nice pleace - if the weather is good!

It's one of my favourite photos, so I've decided to upload it as my 200th PHOTO in my TE Gallery. I'm with you 9 mths, so thanks to All of you Guys for visiting my Gallery and sharing your opinions!


PS. I'm not sure if you know, but White Eagle is the national emblem of Poland :)
