Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in March 2013. During that winter an influx of Great Grey Owls from the north. At this specific location there were 6 Great Grey Owls.
Time
This was taken around 2pm on a Saturday. It was actually a pretty warm day for a March. If I remember correctly it was around -8 degrees celsius.
Lighting
It was a sunny day with a few clouds in the sky
Equipment
This was taken with a Canon EOS 7D and a Sigma f2.8 70-200MM lens. It was hand held.
Inspiration
I love nature. I love the outdoors and I love photographing nature, landscapes and animals.
Editing
Just a bit of colour correction, sharpening and noise reduction.
In my camera bag
Typically I now shoot with a Canon EOS 6D and the following lenses: Canon EF f2.8 16-35MM L Series, Canon EF f2.8 24-70 L series, Canon EF f2.8 70-200MM L series and the Canon EF 100MM L series.
Feedback
Perseverance. Just keep shooting. Get out there and shoot.
