Behind The Lens

Location
I captured this photograph from the summit of Cuyamaca Peak in the Rancho Cuyamaca State Park in California.
Time
This photograph was shot at sunset as storm clouds were moving west across the mountains.
Lighting
With the Sun setting behind and under the clouds, it gave me the perfect opportunity to capture the rain falling. I believe this was one of those special "At the right place, at the right time" type of moments, it was beautiful to watch and photograph.
Equipment
Nikon D800, 28-300mm Nikkor lens, a B+W circular polarizer, and a Quantaray tripod.
Inspiration
I originally hiked up to the top of this mountain to capture a decent sunrise. The incoming clouds were were a total pleasant surprise. It was not hard to photograph once the Sun began to set, the beauty just unfolded.
Editing
The original image was quite dark because of the exposure with the Sun. I adjusted the brightness somewhat on the rain and some of the foreground area.
In my camera bag
When this photograph was made, I carried the Nikon D800 camera, a 16-35mm Nikkor lens, a 28-300mm Nikkor zoom lens, a B+W circular polarizer, and a Quantaray tripod.
Feedback
The best advice I can give to anyone wishing to capture beautiful landscapes is to just get out to your favorite wilderness and walk around. The beauty will just leap up at you and all you have to do is be there and click the shutter!!!
