Behind The Lens

Location
Moraine lake in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada.
Time
Sunrise, which when I visited was at 6:15 am.
Lighting
I got really lucky with the light that morning, beautiful red sunrise that is lighting the mountains.
Equipment
Nikon D5000 with a Tokina 12-24mm f/4 lens and a Nikon 77mm Polarizing filter. I used Sirui T-2005X tripod with K-10x ball head to steady the camera.
Inspiration
The beautiful scenery inspired the photo, I included the canoes on the right to give the photo scale.
Editing
Yes, this is an HDR done with Photomatix, I also used Nik Color Efex pro and used Photoshop CS5 to combine the layers.
In my camera bag
Back then I had a D5000 but now I shoot with a Nikon D600. I have always used Tokina lens and now that I have a full frame camera I shoot with a often shoot with a Tokina 17-35mm f/4. I also carry the following lenses: Nikon 24-85mm, Samyang 14mm f/2.8, Nikon 70-300mm.
Feedback
First scout out your location before hand, I came to this location the day before during the day and knew exactly where I wanted to catch the sunrise. I find scouting especially important for sunrise shoots because I am normally still half asleep when I get to the location. Also, it is important to get there early. I arrived at this location around 5:30am and waited for the sun to rise, getting lots of other good shots as it came up.
