Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in a farmer's field on the outskirts of Ottawa, Canada
Time
I waited for about three hours in temperatures around -25 Celsius for this female snowy owl to move from her perch atop a hydro tower. She finally decided to take a quick tour around the field, stopping briefly on this fence post.
Lighting
Fortunately, it was a fairly cloudy day, so not too many harsh shadows.
Equipment
Equipment included a Canon 5D MK II with a Canon 100-400 lens.
Inspiration
These beautiful birds are only in the area for a couple of months in the winter.
Editing
Post-processing in Photoshop
In my camera bag
I usually travel with three Canon lenses: 14mm, 24-70mm and a 70-200mm. I also carry a Gitzo carbon fibre Traveller series tripod with Gitzo ball head.
Feedback
Patience. Lots and lots of patience. And very warm boots!
