Behind The Lens

Location
Every morning 6:30 am or so, I walk my dog Stella in the open space? This particular morning we walked up this hill and clouds were ablaze with the sunrise! My girl Stella is a poser!
Time
Early morning 6:00 to 6:30am January 25th!
Lighting
Early morning light in fall and spring are fabulous in Colorado but especially when the cirrus clouds are out! This was actually taken late January and this was an early winter sky!
Equipment
This was a Canon 5D MK II and EF 70-200mm/f4L, handheld!
Inspiration
I have taken hundreds of pictures of Stella in the morning but this one is certainly a favorite! Stella is Carolina dog in the U.S. But in Australia she would be a Dingo! Sweet disposition and very smart but not needy!
Editing
I brightened the shadow area of Stella to show her detail!
In my camera bag
Canon 5d MK III, 7d MK II, 400/f5.6 L, 17-40 L and 100/f2.8 Macro L
Feedback
Get up early and find open space and the light is different every morning depending on where you live!
