Snow Leopards

Snow Leopards, originally uploaded by creativebloke.

For some reason, all the guys with much bigger lenses than mine were around the other side of the enclosure on our Saturday trip to Marwell, taking full shots of the leopard up top, instead of the stepped view I saw, but the cats were asleep.. I went up took some shots, talked about lenses (it’s what you do in polite canon society) but found my shots dull, the leopard was well lit, but too much light makes thing flat. So as I sprinted to catch up with mrs creativebloke, I turned round to notice the lower leopard had woken up at my preferred spot, and using the sun as a rim light a non flat snow leopard shot occurred. Trust your instincts, it will result in a better shot.
