Congratulations on your Challenge Win!

Behind The Lens

Location
Shamwari Game Reserve South Africa
Time
Early evening.
Lighting
The lighting was all natural, the golden hour had not quite started.
Equipment
This was taken many years ago with my first digital SLR and a poor quality zoom lens. It just goes to prove that owning good equipment doesn't necessarily make you a good photographer.
Inspiration
I was sitting in a jeep when we came across this lion. I simply couldn't not take a picture of it.
Editing
Apart from sharpening, this image was straight out of the camera.
In my camera bag
At this time I simply had the camera and one zoom lens. I didn't even carry a spare battery.
Feedback
Go on a safari and be patient.
