Da Big Gun - Self Portrait by Scott Denny

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

This was taken in 2008 during a trip to Yellowstone. I saw another guy here on RB post a shot of him and Brutus ( his big Sigma lens).

His shot reminded me of my friend from the past, the Tamron 200-500mm. I replaced it with the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 L USM.

Ah…memories. :-)

    nice shot of yourself in action Scott!

  • Thanks. Its an older shot. I am heading back to Yellowstone this year but without the Tamron. My Canon 400mm should do the trick.

    So is the lens the big gun or your arm? Hehe! You have some big paws too. Look how small your camera looks in your hand! Nice sp Scott :)

  • Micci you cracked me up!!!

    Not to sound vain but really I dont realize how big my arms are until I see a photo. People comment on my arms all the time. They just dont seem as big as they look in a photo.

    My paws…LOL…actually I have always thought I have small hands for a big guy. Again, they look bigger in a photo. I noticed that in another SP I did.

    Me, Myself, and No Eyes

    Thanks for the compliment.

    You couldn’t sound vain if you tried. You are far too humble for that. Maybe they don’t seem big to you because you see you everyday :)
