At dawn everything is colored pale pink, clouds, mountains, ice.

A few times, Griffen Eagles have come this close to me on a mountain when snow climbing. Truly, an amazing experience. I believe they come to watch over us. Sometimes I have left food for them.

Thank you very much Ray.
I'm really glad to post this image here on Mb.
I kept an eye on their nest throughout the summer, without ever being able to get the picture right. Then, at last, in the middle of a meter and a half of snow, She has appeared from the clouds.
Probably she flew above the clouds to warm up a bit 'in the sun.
Cheers.

Amazing.

My experiences: I was at the summit of Monte Velino, after an icy climb alone - and without crampons. Quite dangerous, and scary. Then I heard wings on the breeze, and the great bird arrived, circling above me on the summit and calling its thoughts. I am sure to check on me. Very comforting and inspiring. The descent was really hazardous. Below the snowline, I left some food for thanks. Then, as I arrived back on the track, a long wingtip feather lay in front of me. I still have it. Quite special.

A second time, on the adjacent summit, very cold day, I lay down to sleep in the clouds. I awoke, hearing the wind, and the great bird circled and circled above me. Wow !

Looking at your photo, full size, it is good detail. It deserves publication - maybe a climbing magazine.

It is really a great moment Ray,when you hear the noise of the air passing over the wings of an eagle, the fantastic hiss.
It is something that, personally, makes my skin crawl!
The eagle feather that you are getting is a rare gift of nature, how to find the antlers of a deer, you were very lucky.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful moment with us.
All the best.
Roberto.

I totally agree. The sensation of flight is right there. Isn't it strange how man can now fly with a wingsuit.

Condors have been known to guide hang glider pilots to rising air - they can sense it on their wings, but humans cannot.
