Behind The Lens

Location
I had just bought my first DSLR for this trip to Antarctica. Hardly knew what I was doing, but so touched by this mother Gentoo and her chicks that I watched them for a long time and finally saw the perfect moment.
Time
Daylight is almost the entire day in Antarctica in summer
Lighting
Fortunately the day was overcast which gave a moody feeling to the scene
Equipment
Nikon D90, 70-300 lens handheld
Inspiration
There were people and penguins everywhere, but this one penguin and her chicks were isolated on top of this rock. It was so touching to watch them and the gray sea behind gave the perfect backdrop
Editing
Minimal work in Lightroom
In my camera bag
Now have advanced to Nikon D500, D750 with 80-400 and150-600 lens
Feedback
Antarctica is the last true wild place, every moment is a picture. It has something for everyone, beautiful landscapes and wonderful wildlife
