You made it to the top! My attempt in July wasn't as successful. Nice photo from a wonderful place!

Thanks! Defiantly not as easy as they first look. July would be a little warm too.

Nice capture!

Behind The Lens

Location
Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado
Time
Evening
Lighting
Not much, just a nice cool overcast day.
Equipment
Nikon D7000, Nikkor 14-24mm f2.8 and a remote.
Inspiration
Just wanted a shot of myself taking in this view and nature. I setup my tripod, walked out to the edge with my footsteps coming off the edge of the frame. I sit down and used a wireless remote to capture the shot.
Editing
HDR can't remember the software since I do much HDR anymore.
In my camera bag
Now I use Nikon D810. I will rent lenses for whatever occasion I up against.
Feedback
Just don't forget yourself. If you're like me, I travel alone and have to get creative. Try to bring your audience into the picture. Try to make them feel as like they are there.
