Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photograph right outside my home in Santa Fe. I live in a rural area of Santa Fe, New Mexico. I was working in my studio/study early one morning when I saw this Bob Cat walk right under my window and go around the front of the house. I grabbed my camera and ran out the front door. There he was sitting in the shade of the trees and house just above the short adobe wall. He looked at me and I was able to make a few images before got up and moved to the back side of the house. Now he was in the early golden sunlight, where I was able to make this image. He then crouched as if he was going to pounce, but he took off and was lost in the trees.
Time
THis photograph was taken in the early winter morning sunrise. The light was a beautiful warm
Lighting
The light was a beautiful golden sunrise light
Equipment
I shot this image with a Canon 5D Mark ll with a 100-400mm lens
Inspiration
What a wonderful opportunity to photograph a magnificent wild creature right from my home.
Editing
I shoot raw and do all most all my post processing Camera Raw with some minor adjustments in Photoshop.
In my camera bag
I keep a Canon 5D Mark lll, Canon 100-400 ll lens, Canon 24-105 lens, and Canon Speedlight
Feedback
I am currently doing a series on wild horses. I suggest just getting out there in nature, being quiet, patient, and persistent.
