Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Chapel on the Rock at Camp Saint Malo near Allenspark, Colorado.
Time
This photo was taken around 1:45 in the afternoon on October 4th. It’s a very common stopping point for me every time I visit this part of Colorado.
Lighting
I knew the lighting was going to be just perfect with the cloud cover. Many times when I’ve stopped here, there’s been absolutely no clouds and it’s always way too bright out. Everything came together on this day.
Equipment
I shot this with my Sony a7II camera with a Sigma 16mm f1.4 lens. I also unused my Manfrotto tripod.
Inspiration
This is a favorite location of mine. I’ll stop here multiple times whenever I make a trip to Rocky Mountain National Park.
Editing
Only minor edits. Sky masking and edits. Then just highlight and shadow adjustments.
In my camera bag
I keep my Sony a7II and Sony a6000 cameras in my bag at all times. My lenses are a Sigma 16mm f1.4, Tamron 28-200mm f2.8, Sigma 100-400mm f5-6.3 and a Sigma 150-600mm f5-6.3. I also have a small Manfrotto hiking tripod and a standard size Manfrotto tripod.
Feedback
Just wait for the right lighting and cloud cover. Be patient and keep checking back to the location over multiple days until the conditions are just right.
