Bald Eagles in the Columbia Gorge

January brings frigid temperatures to our region, but it also brings the winter migration of bald eagles to the Columbia River. This particular eagle was fishing in the vicinity of The Dalles Dam. My husband, Dale, photographed it late in the day, the low sun back lighting the wings and body. In the resulting watercolor, my aim was to portray the strength and grace of these amazing raptors.
