Baldies















I have never had the opportunity to visit Homer in the summer because I am always off on my Wildlife Tech work in some remote place. But I have gone twice in the winter, as it's not too far of a drive from Anchorage. Although the Homer spit is pretty much closed down, there are tons of bald eagles everywhere. The darker bird is a juvenile. Of course, most of the reason there are so many is that they get fed here. But it's still spectacular to behold. Between the beaches, glaciers and wildlife, everywhere you turn is a stunning view. The year-round residents seem to be very laid-back and gracious, as well. I highly recommend Homer to anyone visiting Alaska.

Wow, amazing photos. Years ago I spent lots of time with some commerical fisherman on Lake of the Woods. I was trying to get eagle photos. I did it for 3 years and I only got about 10 good photos. I'm going to have to come back up and you can take me to Homer.

These are taken with a cheapo film camera and then transfered low-res so I can only imagine what you could do with your camera and photographic skills!

Ah, I see - film camera. The photos are so glorious I was hoping to put one up on my desktop so I could share the amazing view. Incredible! Another reason for me to trek to Alaska.

Yeah, I just got 53 rolls of film from the last two years in AK developed! So unfortunately you'll be seeing a lot of low res images! Sorry!
