Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken during a pit stop on a road trip between Cusco and Puno, Peru.
Time
Afternoon around 1pm-2pm.
Lighting
Mix of sun and clouds.
Equipment
Camera: Canon EOS Rebel XS Lens: Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM w/ UV filter Tripod
Inspiration
The blending of the colors between the mountains in the foreground and the glacial peak in the background. Also the little house is what makes the image really stand out giving the scene fantastic perspective. Also the view was literally breathtaking as the elevation in this particular stop is a little over 2.5 miles.
Editing
Yes this is an actually an HDR image. Took 3 images at -2, 0 and +2 using exposure braketing then used Photoshops built in HDR creator.
In my camera bag
Camera: Canon EOS Rebel XS Lens: Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM Tripod Neutral Density filter UV Filter
Feedback
I think here an HDR worked perfectly because the scene is so serene. I was able to let the camera stand there with out worrying too much about the objects in the scene moving.
