Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken on a recent trip to Iceland. This is an image taken from Stokksnes, a magical place on the South East coast of Iceland. The Mountain range is Vestrahorn.
Time
Taken about 2 hours before sunset.
Lighting
We were very luck this day. The light was very good.
Equipment
Canon 5D Mark 3. Hand held!!!
Inspiration
It was a spur of the moment shot. 2 seconds later and you would have seen 2 or 3 tourists walking into shot!!
Editing
To be fair, very little was done to this shot. Lightroom was used to process. Only the usual highlights and shadows plus lens calibration.
In my camera bag
Canon body plus wide angle, telephoto and mid range zoom,
Feedback
Just snap!! A lot of the time we can follow the rules, but being in the right place at the right time pays more!!
