Thank you! It's one of my favorites...I took it while inside a moving car, so I was quite excited to see how it turned out. :)

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo while riding down the highway on my way to Chama, NM. We’d made a wrong turn and found ourselves on this beautiful highway, and I took full advantage of the scenery!
Time
It was early in the afternoon.
Lighting
Everything in the photo was natural. It was a lovely day with big fluffy clouds that weren’t moving fast through the sky. They diffused the sunlight just enough to make everything gorgeous.
Equipment
I used a Canon Powershot, and nothing else. I literally took this shot while the car was moving down the highway.
Inspiration
It was such a perfect day. I wanted to capture everything I saw. It wasn’t the road we’d intended to take, but I wouldn’t trade that detour for anything.
Editing
I did some color enhancement and cropping.
In my camera bag
I have two Canon Rebel camera bodies a Tamron SP150-600mm, and a Tamron 50-300mm lens.
Feedback
Don’t get so stressed out that you miss wonderful moments in your journey. I could have easily gotten irritated and frustrated by the wrong turn we’d taken. But if I had, I’d have missed out on the beauty all around me. Stay open and observant - you never know what you’ll find!
