Behind The Lens

Location
I was at Granite Reef in Mesa, Arizona. This is along the Lower Salt River.
Time
This was at Sunset. Approximately 7:30 p.m. on July 12, 2013.
Lighting
This is Ambient lighting. I wanted a peaceful feeling from this.
Equipment
I used a Canon 60D with a 24-70 lens. No tripod, it was handheld.
Inspiration
This is a favorite spot of mine to shoot sunsets. It is very peaceful and quiet here. I was looking around for a Zen-like scene and this is what I found.
Editing
There was no post-processing, this was straight out of the camera.
In my camera bag
I have my Canon 60D, a Tamron 24-70 and a Canon 70-200 prime, 2X extender, a Shutterboss, always backup batteries, a cloth to clean the lenses, if needed. I have a peice of X-Ray film for an eclipse. I carry a set of Macro tubes also.
Feedback
I do use a tripod more now for a cleaner picture. I shot more into the water so that Sun was just a hint, it seems like the lower the Sun is, the more golden the water will be. It is best if the water is calm.
