Behind The Lens

Location
In anticipation of the eclipse I went out driving to follow the sun and try to find a good place to get a shot. As I was driving I saw this hill full of cactus and it seemed that the sun would drop down behind it so I pulled over to the side of the road hoping for a good sunset and vantage for a shot. The picture was taken in Arizona toward the northern city limits of Phoenix.
Time
The shot was taken at 6:43 PM but the chase for location took about an hour and then I sat on the side of the road for !/2 hour or so waiting to shoot. I did take a number of shots before getting one that pleased me.
Lighting
Nature provided the lighting as only nature can
Equipment
Shot with Canon T2I , 55-250mm lens, tripod
Inspiration
I love sunsets and looked at this one as being a unique opportunity
Editing
Only post processing was exposure and contrast
In my camera bag
Carry 50mm prime, 24mm wide angle, 100mm macro and 55-250mm. Carry some filters (ND, polarising).
Feedback
Get out and about and be patient enough to look for and wait for the shot you want. Try to look ahead and anticipate what's coming .
