Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo on George Lake, in Killarney Provincial Park, Ontario. It was our last night there and we were treated to a spectacular sunset, made even more brilliant by the autumn leaves and all of the pink granite.
Time
The photo was taken at sunset, which occurs around 6:30pm at that time of year (mid-October)
Lighting
Since we were out in a moving canoe, I wasn't able to do much to control the lighting but I did take a set of 3 bracketed shots so that I could recover some detail in shadows and highlights later.
Equipment
The photo was taken using a Nikon D7100 with the Nikkor 16-35mm f/4.0 lens at 16 mm. The settings were 1/80th/sec, f/9.0, iso 1600.
Inspiration
We went out in the canoe planning to get some sunset photos from out on the lake. I got some nice shots as the sun set behind the LaCloche Mountains, and then we started heading back. A few minutes later, the sky and the water all around us turned this lovely pink colour that complimented all the pink granite and the crystal clear turquoise water so perfectly.
Editing
I did some exposure blending, using bracketed shots to create an HDR .tiff file so that I have more room to raise the shadows and lower the highlights in Lightroom. Then, I took the photo into Photoshop for some targeted contrast adjustments and finished it off with some Detail Extractor and Tonal Contrast adjustments in Nik Software.
In my camera bag
I usually have my Nikon D750, Nikon D7100 and at least one wide lens and one telephoto (Probably the Nikkor 16-35 f/4.0 and the Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3) I find that, with the two camera bodies with different sized sensors, I can use the lenses on either body, giving me a greater range of equivalent focal lengths. If I put the 16-35 on my D7100, then I have the equivalent to a 24-52 mm focal length, so I don't really need to lug around my 24-70.I might also throw my Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 in the bag, to give me some coverage in the range between that 52mm and where the Tamron picks up at 150, without carrying the bulk of my 70-200. I'll always have a circular polarizer, a 6 stop neutral density filter, a tripod, and a remote trigger with me, as well.
Feedback
First, you have to get out there at sunrise and sunset, as often as possible. Sometimes conditions will look great all day and the sunset is a dud, other times it's been raining for hours and the sky opens up at the last minute for a spectacular show. You won't know unless you're there. To be honest, I'm not sure why I didn't use my D750 for this shot (perhaps I was nervous to take it in the canoe). I wish I had, though because it has such great iso performance and the photo would have been sharper if I could have increased the iso to use a faster shutter speed. The +2.0 EV shot in my bracketed series was unusable due to the motion blur. Obviously, had we been on land I would have shot a scene like this using a tripod and the lowest possible iso and a long shutter speed, but that was not possible in a canoe.
