Jason, thank you for sharing your amazing shot of Courthouse Mnt. and Chimney Rock! I am researching my G-granddad's trip through the Gunnison country and the San Juans in 1881 -- he wrote of his trip up the Cimarron to Chimney Rock. Beautiful photo!

Behind The Lens

Location
I captured this photo in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. There's no trail to this viewpoint but the view is more than worth a little route-finding.
Time
I captured this image after sunset just as the Milky Way was starting to come out. I had hoped to spend the night capturing the stars but soon after this shot a hail storm moved in and I had to seek shelter further down the ridge.
Lighting
This is a single shot with all the foreground light coming from the last bit of twilight and the stars.
Equipment
I shot this on a Sony a7R II with Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 lens.
Inspiration
I had visited this location several times before for strictly landscape photos but I wanted to incorporate the viewpoint you stand on into an image.
Editing
Not much processing on this image other than bringing up shadow detail and reducing noise.
In my camera bag
My a7R II and a couple lenses, a tripod, audio recorder, filters, and other gear.
Feedback
Be careful on cliffs and peaks, especially when alone, check all your footing beforehand.
