Bald Eagle: Soaring the Splash Zone (2017)

$4820 USD
Located over a hundred kilometres from the mainland of Canada's west coast, Haida Gwaii, (formerly called the Queen Charlotte Islands) receives the full impact of the swells coming across the North Pacific. On the west side of the Islands the salt spray from crashing waves keeps the rocks free of vegetation for sometimes 20 meters above the tide-line. I wanted to capture the feeling of this high energy coastline. Rather than painting a big explosion of spray, I felt the sense of power was better conveyed by a wall of green water as it surged up the cliff face. When the ocean surface is tilted it is certainly not at rest. Bald eagles are almost the most frequently seen bird along these rugged shores and this one adds an important point of interest to the scene.
