Bald eagles, our national symbol, have come back dramatically from near extinction over the last fifty years. Theyre a very common sight where I live in the Cascade Mountains in Oregon. I never get tired of looking at bald eagles, nor do I ever tire of the sunsets we get here, looking toward the West and the Cascades. This horizon in particular lends itself to a longer image, one where you can look in every direction and see something. I wanted to show the eagles as they flew across the skyline, using the last fading rays of sunlight to find a place to roost for the night. Theyre surfing the sunset, riding those last thermals before they go to bed.
