Under an eagles nest.

This will be a very short post today.

I have liked this image for a long time - I like the way that the parts of it seem so random.  A boulder on a cliff.  A nest on a boulder.  A hole under the boulder with the nest.  A tree growing from what seems to be nothing but solid stone.  

The picture was taken on boat trip around Magnetic Island a few years ago - it was not breeding season for the Sea Eagles that built the nest - so that one last element was missing.  That feel like a good reason to go back!


You can find more (and probably more expansive!) skies at Sky Watch Friday.

HI Stewart What an amazing composition. Excellent capture. Sorry I was not able to do WBW this week as I was away at my 'old' caravan. Margaret

I can see why you like it. The gap beneath that boulder is very unusual. I'd like to see it for myself.

This delightful photo seems to be all about establishing an identity in challenging terrain! Dynamic! And the blue radiance of the sky highlights the scene!

Wow!! I guess it's a pretty safe spot for an eagles nest!

I love this picture and it should be enough. But I really want to see a picture of that sea eagle.

Nice picture. And unusual as sea eagles usually have their nests of big old trees.

Nature doesn't do anything randomly! Everything in it's place for a purpose. Great and interesting photo Stewart!
