Behind The Lens

Location
I took this just outside a golf course in Cardiff, Alberta, Canada on a nice crisp Winter Morning.
Time
Time would be 830 in the morning or earlier as the gates only open around 730 or 8am.
Lighting
Have your Iso at 100 and the shutter around 300 to get the color in the sky but enough for the detail of the landscape.
Equipment
I used a SonyA300 camera. Beautiful crop frame. I used a 18-55mm lens as it is my landscape lens I have for that camera. One of my favorite lens to shoot with.
Inspiration
I wanted a sunrise on a winter morning. I got my sunrise. I knew in advance where I wanted to take it. I scouted times for days and took photos at the different times.
Editing
Of course I have. I brought it into Lightroom, a software I use and I balanced out the colours and histogram to make the photo even in both lighting and visually as O tend to have a tilt when taking a photo.
In my camera bag
I have a 70-300mm lens, 18-55mm lens, a tripod, extra cards and batteries, a flash of some sort, and sometimes a type of macro lens. I now also carry an 80mm Lens Ball with me at all times and my phone for my new camera Canon 80D for a remote.
Feedback
Load up on coffee and wake before the sun is even showing. The sky should be dark and get to your spot early. Better be prepared than not. This way you can get the photo you want and many other chances you may not even think of getting.
