fantastic shot

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo at the summit of a volcano in Bali, Indonesia.
Time
I started the hike up at 2am and arrived at the top just in time for the sunrise. We sat down and enjoyed hot banana sandwiches prepared over the heat from the volcano. As we were enjoying breakfast, a monkey got a hold of one of the bananas and ran straight to the top of the volcano with it. He sat at the very top, pealed the banana, and ate it.
Lighting
The only lighting I had was the natural light from the sunrise.
Equipment
This photo was taken with nothing but my iPhone6
Inspiration
It was one of those picture-perfect photos that is almost too good to be true. I had to take it before I lost that moment. Sure enough, about 1 second after I took it, the monkey ran off.
Editing
I uploaded the photo onto my Macbook and added a few touches in iPhoto.
In my camera bag
As mentioned, I had no equipment. Just my handy iPhone
Feedback
Be patient and enjoy a banana in the meantime.
