Behind The Lens

Location
I captured this image in Death Valley.
Time
Midnight
Lighting
Just a sliver of the moon was lighting the area
Equipment
Canon 5dmkIII
Inspiration
I try to capture images that illustrate the surreal beauty of the natural world.
Editing
I lifted some shadows on the tree and applied noise reduction since it was shot at high ISO.
In my camera bag
Nikon 14-24 with canon adapter. Canon 24L, 35L, 50L, 80L, 90TSE, 100 macro, 135L, 200 2.0 2 600EX flashes with wireless remote. Manfroto carbon fiber tripod.
Feedback
Anyone can capture a night scape by using a tripod, long exposure / high ISO settings.
