Fall Wildlife Assignment Winner Brendan Watt
Photo By Brendan Watt
Congratulations to Brendan Watt who won the Fall Wildlife Assignment!
“This photo was taken in the beautiful and rugged Bridger Mountain Range in Southwest Montana,” says Watt. “I was doing a photo shoot at a friend of mine’s place called Animals of Montana, where they raise and train animals for photography and video. Smokey the mountain lion was 11 weeks old at the time of the shoot. His adolescent, spotted coat and blue eyes made for perfect contrast with the fall foliage. The night before the shoot a wind storm came through and took away almost all of the fall color I was anticipating, except for a few low lying shrubs which, paired with this tiny mountain lion, made for an ideal shot.
Equipment & Settings: Nikon D7100, Nikkor 300mm, ISO 800, f/5.6, 1/250 sec., exp.+0.7, Vanguard Tripod (Alta Pro 283CT)
