Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was captured in Amboseli National Park in Kenya
Time
This was taken in the morning as the elephants were moving from the mountains to the marshes. There was a group of young male elephants playing and showing their stuff, kicking up dust along the way. A magnificent morning in Amboseli.
Lighting
Morning natural light was perfect.
Equipment
Nikon D4s, 200-400 F4.0 lens, bean bag over the top of the safari vehicle - no tripod.
Inspiration
Watching the natural behavior and seeing the dust start to fly - the series was so much fun to capture.
Editing
converted to black and white - that's all
In my camera bag
Nikon D4 and D4s, 24-70 F2.8, 28-300, 200-400, 80-400
Feedback
Patience
