Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo during a trip I did to the United States, at the Lake Powell Resort. It was the most memorable trip of my life so far and I can't wait to repeat.
Time
This was around 7 PM the sunset was beautifull and I got everything in my favour to make a great picture.
Lighting
By the time I took this picture the day was coming to an end, with the sun bathing the field with its last orangish rays. It was gorgeous...
Equipment
The photograph was shot using a Nikon D90 and a Sigma 120-400mm.
Inspiration
On that day, I was trying to explore a bit and getting to know the place I was staying for future photographs. Sometimes I could see hares running around in the fields but I never payed much attention to them as I expected them to run away if l tried to get close. But, by the time I was returning to my van I noticed this one hare that was particularly close to the walkway so I decided to go check and see what the animal would do if I tried to move closer to it. As expectable, it ran away, but I didn't gave up. I spent around 30 minutes silently chasing it through the fields, after this time the hare didn't ran away as much and even approached me some times as if it was curious. With this opportunity I tryed to discretely change my position to photograph the animal against the sun to give to the possible picture a more dramatic look. Then, I waited for the moment where everything merged into place.
Editing
I usually do some post-processing on my photos, specially with landscape photographs were there is a lot of information for the camera to be able to process. But as I transfer this picture to my computer I imeadtly realize that it was perfect: the light was on point, the colors were intense and the contrast was perfect. It looked like that everything merged to make the perfect picture.
In my camera bag
My equipment is very limited, as of my age I am still a student and my budget doesn't afford a lot of material. I have a single body, a Nikon D90 were I attach my lens that I normally carry at all times: a Nikon 18-105mm, a Tamron 90mm 2.8 macro and a Sigma 120-400mm. I always carry a Hoya ND 9 stops filter to any long exposure that I may be able to make. I also use a cheap tripod (I'm saving money to buy a new and decent tripod) and when I need I use carry a Benro monopod mainly to support my big and heavy Sigma.
Feedback
The best advice I can give to others is, to be patient - To make a great picture, specially in nature photography, you need patience. As I'm still young and inexperienced I recognize that there are some situations where the "waiting and planning" game is boring and even painful, but I also learned that it pays of. Other advice is, to be original, I know everyone says this, but I think its true. If you want to photograph something (a place or a thing) that already is very photographed you need to think "outside the box" and search for a composition, light or colors that will make your photograph stand out as different and more unique. That's what I aim for with every picture I take.
