Behind The Lens

This picture was taken at a lake off of hwy 66 in Lyons Colorado.
Was about 6:30pm sunset time of day here in Colorado.
I didn't do anything special to create this beautiful image except open my aperture wide enough to catch the natural beauty of the sunset reflecting off the lake.
I own a Nikon D3100 and have a very steady hand so no tripod was needed.
I was originally doing a senior prom photo shoot at the lake and we just finished up when I happen to turn around and was in awweee of the colors in the clouds. I whipped out my camera again and just started taking shots of the sunset over the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
I used Lightroom to adjust some of the noise and clarity then crop to adjust angle a bit is all.
In my camera bag
I carry camera of course... Then have my stock lenses, 85mm and a 50mm lense, and my VR 55-200 to use when photographing action shots. And let's not forget my Yongnuo speedlight to use when needed as well.
To do outside nature and landscaping photography takes alot of patience and luck being at right place, right time. It is a learn as you go based on your style of photography. Two people can take same shot and then edit it total different then the other. To know your camera is also a key thing when shooting sunsets and knowing what setting to use to get the best quality of colors and surroundings in your shot. I am no expert and still consider myself a photographer in training even though I have been shooting for almost 5 yrs now and still learning new things and tricks to get the best out of my pictures....
