Behind The Lens

Location
Taken at the Echo point in Blue Mountains, NSW
Time
This is the first light of 1st Jan 2015.
Lighting
Nope.
Equipment
Nikon D5100 on a Tripod
Inspiration
I was in the area and it just made sense to take advantage of the location :)
Editing
Nothing much other than some basic tweaking of contrast and colour depth.
In my camera bag
Now I have my D750 with my Nikon 22-70 and my trusted LumoPro manual flash.
Feedback
For a photo like this the main thing you need is patience and a tripod helps too :) It was slightly tricky for me to get the timing right. With long exposure, the sun became too bright and with faster exposure, everything else became too dark, so had to experiment a little. Don't be afraid to take multiple shots and wait on the perfect time for that light to emerge from behind the mountains. I thouroughly enjoyed taking this photo. I hope more people would go and explore this area.
