Behind The Lens

Location
5 minutes from home, Leader Saskatchewan.
Time
I took this shot just as the sun was setting.
Lighting
The evening sunlight is my favorite light, and in this photo its golden hue definitely ads to the scene.
Equipment
Canon 6D, and 25-70mm lens
Inspiration
I'd been curious for a while if the sun set near the end of these tracks in winter. On a very cold day I was inspired to go for a drive to check it out. It sure did set at the end of the tracks!
Editing
This is the result of 7 shots bracketed shots taken on a tripod. I loaded 5 of the raw files into photomatix to blend the exposures.
In my camera bag
I travel with Canon 6D and a 24-70 f/2.8 II as well as 16-35 f/2.8 II lens. I also carry a 7dmkII with 100-400 for any wildlife i might happen across.
Feedback
Patience, Patience, Patience. I had to wait in the cold for the sun to cross the tracks. Dress warm. I did not, and received some frost bite to my ears.
