Behind The Lens

Location
Duck Creek Conservation Area near Puxico MO
Time
I took this photo just after sunrise when the light was rising out of the eastern sky.
Lighting
The light is completely natural sunlight.
Equipment
I use a Fuji Finepix point and shoot bridge camera with no added lens's. I shot it completely free handed with no tripod or stabilizers.
Inspiration
The absolute beauty of seeing a natural mated pair of bald eagles hunting together in perfect cooperation and intelligent collusion. I knew it may be a once in a life chance to see them work together to feed their fledglings. My heart may have stopped while watched them.
Editing
I did some cropping and a little clarity and lower of exposure. At the time I had no editing program. I did use the zoom that is part of my camera.
In my camera bag
I actually don't have a bag. just my camera, my lens cover, a cloth rag and a zip lock bag to cover my camera when it gets humid or rains or dusty.
Feedback
You just have to be out there. Truly be there. I spend hundreds of hours outside in nature in wild places away from people watching the birds and animals and landscapes, sunrises, sunsets, storms, clouds, lighting, plants, etc. You just have to be out there because when you don't expect it is when the shot will come. And ALWAYS have your camera with you. I just have a very cheap camera, but it works for me and never lets me down.
