Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Zion National Park
Time
Just before the sun started Setting,
Lighting
I was rushing to get out of the park to take the 3 hour drive back to Las Vegas, on my way out i noticed the awesome mix of colours and being in Love with Landscapes, especially the RED rocks, i just had to take a photo, i stopped on the side of the road, jumped out and went to the bridge, there was a lot of people so the only way i could get a shot was to kneel down and take it through the lower and middle barrier.So i kneeled and manual focussed the M9 and snapped 3 shots. Got up and left, not looking at my images until i got home
Equipment
Leica M9, 28mm Elmarit
Inspiration
It was my first time in Zion and the Colours and light elements in December just blew me away
Editing
Yes, with any digital age i appplied my Landscape preset
In my camera bag
Leica M9, M240 28mm, 50mm, 90mm manual focus lenses. Hasselblad Lunar with 28mm, 18-55mm and Leica M adapter to ise my Manual focus lenses I always carry a spare battery, and a Film Camera Leica M6, R8 just on case i want to shoot on Film
Feedback
Photography is capturing the Light and Composition You as the Photographer see and visualize at that moment in time, it cannot be replicated, every photographer should strive to put their own stamp on their Landscapes, it's never wrong when it's your interpretation. After all Photography is Art created from the Photographers's perspective, Camera, Technical precision and Post processing plays a part, but it's just the supporting tools. I would suggest you look at other images for ideas, but then go out and infuse it with your passion
