Photographer's Note

Eagle view

This is not quite a skyline and that's why I thought that posting this shot that includes an "eagle" would be best when describing this landscape shot as an eagle view. Wikipedia defines a skyline as "the overall or partial view of a silhouette of a city's tall buildings and structures consisting of many skyscrapers in front of the sky in the background".

I might have hundreds of shots showing downtown Hartford from this PoV. I shot it under all sorts of light conditions, in different seasons, during the day or at night, etc. But due to my camera's limited capabilities, many of the shots didn't come out too great. This one, for example, is taken under maximum zoom followed by substantial cropping and the downtown skyline still appears pretty far. The shot was captured from atop the Eastern Farmington Heights.


PS I don't know for a fact that's an actual eagle but it's at least some sort of hawk and definitely a large bird.
