International Falconry Competition

Archive photo posting

OPOCNO, Czech Republic – It was October 1994 and the annual International Falconry Competition was again taking place in this historic small town. I was fortunate to be able photograph this beautiful and ancient form of hunting for the English-language newspaper Prognosis. Along with the paper’s reporter and translator, I walked kilometers through open fields and brush with falconers from across Europe who traveled to take part in ┬áthis competition.
