Camera: Canon EOS R3

Lens: Canon RF600

Aperture: F/4

Shutter speed: 1/160 s

ISO: 200

Description: A beautiful cheetah keeping a sharp lookout and assesses the possibilities for a successful morning hunt.

Story from behind the lens: It was an early morning in the safari vehicle and the light was limited, so luckily I was able to acquire this one at 1/160s, since I wanted high resolution/low noise/low ISO. This was not the most challenging photo to take, but I love the tones, the ambience and the beautiful soft light on the cheetah. For me this is a wallhanger.
