Behind The Lens

Location
Yellowstone National Park in May 2011.
Time
This was in the mid morning, probably around 10am.
Lighting
It was a very bright day, but also very brisk that kept a slight haze in the air.
Equipment
This was my very first DSLR Camera: Sony A350 Lens: Sony kit 75-300mm
Inspiration
Many of the Bulls were acting out and hoped I could capture them during battle. This was 1 in a series of 2 shots captured.
Editing
Sharpening of the subjects and converted to black & white
In my camera bag
Then: Sony A350 Now: Sony A77 Sony A580 Sigma 150-500mm Sony kit 75-300mm Sony kit 18-55mm
Feedback
If you have never been or it's been a long time.... Go to Yellowstone & Tetons, you won't regret it.
