Paul Randal's amazing Bald Eagle pictures from Alaska

Paul Randal, who is best known for being one of the best writers and teachers about SQL Server, is also a tremendous photographer, and he recently posted some pictures from his trip to Alaska.

You have to see these pictures, they are simply superb:



Not only are the pictures gorgeous, Paul includes some great notes about the process of learning to take pictures like these:

You don't need camoflauge clothing and lens wraps to get good wildlife shots (I think that stuff looks daft), you just need patience and an understanding of the wildlife behavior. We sat in the same small area for 6 hours a day and waited for the eagles to come to us.


Many thanks for sharing these pictures Paul, I enjoyed them very much!
