A gorgeous day in the Pacific NW today, and so with bird photography in mind, we from a local photog meetup went out to the peaceful (even sleepy) Sauvie’s Island along the Columbia River north of Portland.  Did I say it was beautiful? So light was not ideal, and the flocks of sandhill cranes and snow geese stayed far away.  But the sounds were amazing, and they were spectacular through spotting scopes.  We did come on a friendly immature bald eagle perched in a tree near the beach parking lot, and got some nice detail shots.  For the second image, I liked 2 or 3 B&W versions of the shot of Mt St Helens in snow.  I went with the old-style w/film grain, just on a whim.  Not a common approach in post-processing for me, but I’ve been thinking of the early explorers (Stephen Meek is my favorite, William Clark second), so I thought this version matched my mood and what I thought would look good considering the bright sunny mid-day light.  Feel free to comment.
