No problem. They hide it at the bottom of the page and is easy to miss.

Behind The Lens

Location
Mesa Arch in Canyonland National Park in Utah
Time
At sunrise in May 2015
Lighting
I had to bracket 9 pictures to create HDR image to get the light correct.
Equipment
Nikon D800, 14-24mm lens and a sturdy tripod
Inspiration
I have seen so many beautiful shots from this location and had to make my own version of it.
Editing
I created an HDR from 9 images.
In my camera bag
Nikon D800, 14-24mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm, filters, cleaning supplies, extra batteries, flash, notepad, tripod, snacks and water.
Feedback
Get there early to get your spot. It fills up fast and when I went there were about 100 people there at sunrise.
