16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Eagle silhouette at sunset
My husband and I were vacationing in Washington and found a beautiful spot off the bluff of the Dungeness Recreational Area to watch the sunset. We were taking photos and admiring all of God's creation when all of a sudden, this majestic eagle flew past. Neither of us was quick enough to catch a photo, but then he did another swoop back and glided gracefully right in front of us. There was no chance to change any of the settings on my camera, but I ended up with a one in a million shot of the eagle silhouette up against the sun setting on the Salish Sea.
