Thank you!

Behind The Lens

Location
I shot this at Leprechaun Lake in The Enchantments near Leavenworth, Washington. Our campsite was just a few yards away from these mountain goats.
Time
These two wandered through our camp early in the morning. I shot this around 7:00am.
Lighting
The rising sun was at a perfect angle to create a bit of a halo effect around the goats.
Equipment
Sony NEX-3, handheld.
Inspiration
In a place like The Enchantments it's impossible not to be inspired. These two were regular visitors to our camp. This was the best shot out of the 4 days we were there.
Editing
Very little editing needed for this shot. I cropped and adjusted the lighting in Lightroom.
In my camera bag
Nikon D750, Nikon D5300, Sony NEX3, filters, tripod.
Feedback
As you know lighting is critical and timing is everything. I was lucky to capture these two in their natural habitat at a perfect time of day...well worth the grueling 9-mile hike!
