Good shot.

Behind The Lens

Location
the picture was taken at a waterhole in Amboseli
Time
It was early in the morning.
Lighting
ISO 400 ; f/5; 1/400
Equipment
I used a Nikon D4 and a 600mm AF-S VR Nikkor f/4G ED lens. No tripod, just a bean bag in the window of the car
Inspiration
Sitting at a water hole in the morning in Africa is like paradise. No better place to be. One can watch all sorts of animals come by for some water. It is just wonderful. Elephants are very picky , when it comes to the quality of the water. This elephant spent a long time testing the water, walking around, testing again, before he started drinking. Watching him doing so, was fascinating.
Editing
I used lightroom
In my camera bag
In Africa, on a safari, I take my Nikon D4 and Nikkon D800. Whenever the transportation allows, I take my 600 mm lens there. In the city I take a wide angle lens. For a walk in nature a macro lens.
Feedback
Patience. When you sit and watch, nature will come your way.
