Behind The Lens

Location
The picture was taken out of the window of a small plane on a flight to the mountain base camp for climber of Mt. Mckinley in Alaska. This photo is part of a series of picture I was preparing on the McKinley range. The plane was equiped with skis to land on Ruth Glacier.
Time
The weather was unusally clear with a fantastic view of the mountain. We took off at about 10:30 am in early June.
Lighting
Lighting was catch as catch can out of a jumpy aircraft.
Equipment
The camera was hand held with a 35 to 70mm lens.
Inspiration
Just the right angle and compostition made for this photo--pure luck.
Editing
No post processing except clean-up and sharpening in lightroom.
In my camera bag
In my camera bag are two lenses (35-70mm and 70-300mm). With the advent of software and digital cameras, I no longer carry the heavy f2.8 lenses simply because I can no longer hold them steady without tripod. I also always carry my ring flash for the opportunistic macro. I also carry macro extension tubes.
Feedback
The weather around Mt. Mckinley is unpredictable but May, June and Early July can find the best conditions for great lighting.
