Thank you very much! This lighting was caused by a lot of smokey skies from summer fires in the mountains in the area. Some days were hard to breathe.

Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken in my hometown of Great Falls, Montana. It was the year of the many fires in our state and in the states west of us.
Time
I went for an evening drive looking for an opportunity to get that one great shot!
Lighting
The sky was orange like an evening campfire.
Equipment
The camera I used was my Sony Cyber shot. It has a Carl Zeiss 2-2,8/7,1-51 attached lense. A tripod was used.
Inspiration
I was looking for a great shot that would capture the fullness of the color and smokiness of the sky! I saw these flowers along the river and I thought what a great focal point for the orange sky!
Editing
I just added a little contrast to deepen the color other than that, the sky did the rest!
In my camera bag
I used my MOTO Z Force phone a lot. The megapixels was 26. Now I use my new phone MOTO Z4. They both have great, easy to use cameras! It works great in close ups and regular shots. I have my Canon PowerShot along with my Sony Cybershot!
Feedback
You never know when that perfect shot will come along! Always have your camera near by and be on the lookout for it!
