Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken on the shore of Lake Garda, Italy.
Time
We were out for an evening stroll after dinner. As the sun was going down, my son and I went looking for an interesting subject for the foreground. The ducks just swam into the right location on queue.
Lighting
Although it would have been nice to have the sun reflecting on the water, lighting up the whole lake, the more muted light, as the sun set behind the clouds seems to work quite well.
Equipment
Canon EOS 350D, hand held.
Inspiration
I love landscape photography. Sometimes it's about being in the right place at the right time, but you still have to frame it. I love the effect of light on water, even when it's not sparkling.
Editing
No. Pretty much straight out of the camera.
In my camera bag
I now have a 5DMk3 and carry a variety of lenses, depending on where I am and how far I'm going to have to carry it! I always have my 24-105 and my 70-300. Depending on circumstances, I may bring along my 100mm macro or my new 16-35mm, which I loved using on our recent holiday to Canada.
Feedback
Timing is key at sunset. As always, don't give up when the sun goes below the horizon. All sorts of interesting things happen to the light shortly after. If you can, take a tripod, to allow for low light shooting.
