The amount of awards for this made my jaw drop.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken near Nagano, Japan. I was invited to a photo contest organized by f-stop. The goal of the photo competition was to capture the outdoor sports scene in the Hakuba region, this photo was part of the series.
Time
From what I recall somewhere in the afternoon.
Lighting
This photo was taken in natural light.
Equipment
A Nikon D700 with Zeiss Planar 50mm 1.4.
Inspiration
I had never seen monkeys in the snow before. This was one of a group of monkeys that didn't move and was actually quite fierce when I came close to focus on his eye.
Editing
Yes, I enhanced the colors to make the photo pop a little bit better.
In my camera bag
Nowadays I use a Fuji GFX with two or three lenses (depending on the photo I have in mind).
Feedback
Always be patient with animals! This photo took quite a while to get right.
