Behind The Lens

Location
Martinselkonen Wilderness Lodge, Finland
Time
It was at 22:22 in the evening. We had spent 4+ hours in a sweltering hot hide next to the water and had not seen a single bear. The light was almost lost when this lone bear came into view.
Lighting
Nope, all natural light
Equipment
Olympus Om-D, EM-1, 50-200mm F2.8-3.5mm MK 1 lens
Inspiration
I always wanted to shoot some bears and booked a few days in Finland for my birthday in the summer.
Editing
Not a huge amount just some tweaks in Lightroom
In my camera bag
Olympus Om-D, EM-1, 50-200mm F2.8-3.5mm MK 1 lens, EC-14 Nikon D7100, 300mm F4 PF, TC-14iii, 70-200mm F4, VR
Feedback
spend around 3 nights at Martinselkonen Wilderness Lodge, Finland
