2018 Winter Wildlife Tour of Japan | Steller’s Eagles Flying

Feb 26 | Evan | No Comments |

After a wonderful (but freezing) time in the 2017 Winter Wildlife Tour of Japan, I planned another tour along with Chris Weston Photography.  While the places were mainly the same as last year, we changed the order a little to start with Steller’s Sea Eagles.  Chris is a fantastic wildlife photographer and I was really excited to partner with him again for another trip.  He actually just launched an online master class, I’d recommend taking a look as he is a great teacher and I always learn something from him even if I’m with him for just a few minutes.

Back to our 2018 Winter Wildlife Tour of Japan tour though!  The previous year we ended with the Steller’s Sea Eagles but this year we were starting with them.  I love the eagles and the way they fly, sharply turn and perform acrobatics in the air.

In addition to the eagles, there were plenty of seagulls which I also find beautiful in their own way.  Not as dynamic as the eagles in Japan, but I find something about them quite calming and photogenic. Along with Chris Weston, I escorted a small group of wildlife photographers in Japan in search of Japan’s Winter Wildlife.
