Behind The Lens

Location
Maroon Bells, outside of Aspen, Colorado.
Time
This was taken shortly after sunrise. I arrived before sunrise, it was shoulder to shoulder photographers around the lake. Most everyone left after the sun rose. I stuck around and the wind died down and the lake stilled for a marvelous reflection.
Lighting
I wanted to capture the sun rising over the mountains but it didn't rise exactly where I thought it would, so I had to "settle" for the peaks being lit up.
Equipment
Canon T2I EF-S18-55mm with Tripod
Inspiration
I just wanted to capture the amazing beauty of this location. I was really hoping for epic sunrise colors, but it didn't happen that morning. I made the best out of it though!
Editing
Lightroom, just to bring out the highlights and colors.
In my camera bag
Canon T2I, my favorite lens is the Prime 24mm.
Feedback
Sunrise at this location, can be absolutely wonderful. Its so serene and picturesque.
