Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Valley View Point at Yosemite National Park on Christmas day afternoon after a snowstorm the previous night.
Time
It was truly a white Christmas magical moment at the park on 25th Dec, 2015 in the afternoon. There was a snow storm the previous night and the entire park had a wonderful fresh white snow look. We took a Yosemite valley tour bus and this was one of the first few stops. I was awed at the beauty of El Capitan and its reflection on Merced river.
Lighting
It was a perfect moment, fresh snow with sunlight, blue sky, beautiful reflections of the granite monolith El Capitan.
Equipment
This was taken by a Canon T3i DSLR camera with a 10-22mm wide angle lens. No other equipment was used.
Inspiration
Yosemite valley is an amazingly beautiful place. The wonder of nature I think is what inspires you to capture every moment while you are there. I have been greatly inspired by Ansel Adams photography of Yosemite National Park. His captures are truly beyond words and inspires every landscape photographer in its own way.
Editing
The photo was taken in RAW format and was just processed for conversion and contrast.
In my camera bag
Along with my camera, I usually always have the 10-22mm Canon Wide angle lens. I love landscape photography and this lens is amazing to capture everything you want to.
Feedback
A good composition is a key to a successful photo. Being at the right place at the right time of the day and having the patience to try out different angles is some other key things that make a good landscape photo. So just keep exploring and clicking.
