Birds of prey are magnificent creatures, proud and powerful! During the last 6 years I have had a project running, trying to capture the true essence of these rulers of the sky. The images you see presented here are the result of numerous hours spent in nature to come close enough to the birds. Both from within hides as well as in open sight for the subjects.
I strive to get passed the documentary aspect of photography, an image should provide feelings! To get the observer to become one with the seen and get them to share the feeling I felt while experiencing these moments of magic in person. This is what categorize a truly successful image!
I was standing by myself on the side of the meadow at dusk when I saw movement on the other side. Silently the Great grey owl came in for an evening hunt! A fantastic moment being alone with this majestic bird observing it for an hour successfully catching prey. Here a shot from when it was sitting close to my side of the meadow arranging it’s feathers.
