Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken while on a trip through Switzerland. Travel photo's are always challenging due to time limitations.
Time
This photo was taken mid morning. We were very fortunate that snow had fallen the night before. This is quite unusual for June in Europe.
Lighting
Lighting was all natural. It was quite bright due to the snow.
Equipment
Canon 600D along with my favourite lens, the Canon 24-105mm f/4 IS Lens.
Inspiration
Mt Pilatus, near Lucerne, Switzerland is extremely picturesque. We had travelled up on the old cog wheel train to the summit and the views were spectacular. I liked this view of the valley below because you could only see one line of trees through the low cloud. Like it was a floating world in the clouds.
Editing
Only a little contrast due to the brightness.
In my camera bag
Camera, Any lens I think I may use that trip along with spare filters, batteries and memory cards. And always a cleaning cloth.
Feedback
When travelling with a group it is sometimes hard to get photos without many people in them. Stay back a couple of minutes after the others have moved on - you will get some lovely photos.
