Behind The Lens

Location
My local heathland: Ceasers Camp near Farnham, UK. The cows are free to graze in summer, but it's a large expanse of heathland, and they are rarely in the same spot.
Time
Just after dawn on a wet, miserable English summer day. The cows were lying in, but while most has chosen to shelter under trees, this lady choosen a bed of heather.
Lighting
Flat. Heavy overcast conditions saw to that. But with overcast comes detail and cool tones. Second best light to the golden hour.
Equipment
My trusty Nikon D850 and Nikon 200-500 F/5.6. Handheld. F/5.6.
Inspiration
The colour and the composition! Her glorious golden coat complemented the heather. I was also able to get down low so I could obscure here muzzle in the heather.
Editing
Basic adjustments in Adobe Lightroom. A small crop.
In my camera bag
Depends if I'm carrying the 200-500mm F/5.6! If I am, a Nikon 20mm F1.8 and Nikon 60mm F2.8. If I am not, the Nikon 20mm F/1.8 will be complimented by a Sigma 24-35mm F/2 and either a Samyang 135mm F/2 or Nikon 70-200mm F/4.
Feedback
Shoot more in the rain! Lots of low cost lens/camera covers on the market today which won't give you any excuse to stay dry inside. And you'll witness scenes and lighting you'll never get when it's dry.
