Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Ilulissat, Greenland. A humpback whales played around between the boat and these amazing icebergs, which gives a great background for this photo.
Time
This is takes in the sunrise. Went out very early
Lighting
The soft light from the sunrise makes gives the surface some nice details.
Equipment
I used Canon 1Dx with my 200-400mm f/4.0 ext 1,4
Inspiration
I planned this early morning trips, because i knew the whales was there, and i really hoped i could get some good tail shots. And hopefully get some ice as a background. Which i think worked really well here in this one.
Editing
This is pretty much how it came from the camera. I normally don't do much with my photos, i like to give people the "real thing" and let it stay natural. I might have added some contract and clarity in LR
In my camera bag
It depends on what photos im going for. Wildlife, which is my main thing. I always have my 2 houses Canon 5d Mark 3 and 1Dx. Lenses can be canon 200-400mm, 70-200mm, 16-35 mm. Then i feel safe ;)
Feedback
Always get down in the same level as your animal, I have seen many tails from higher than the whales, which doesn't give the same life in the photo. And of course the water curtains, I really love how the water slides off from the tail.
