Behind The Lens

Location
At Mesa Arch, Island in the Sky in the Moab region of Canyonlands, Utah, USA
Time
It was the sunrise, and even if I was a early bird I was one of the many early birds.
Lighting
Don't ruah to get the sun at its birth, just take some time, the best shots can be made even an hour after the sun rise.
Equipment
Nikon D810 with Nikkor 16-35 f/4 with a Käsemann polarizer. Freehand.
Inspiration
A lot more I've seen of this iconic place, but wanted to do it with my own style.
Editing
The photo is an HDR made of five shots, and I've curated the exposition and color of every single pixel.
In my camera bag
Nikon D800 and D810 bodies , Nikkor 16-35, 24-70, 70-200 and a sigma 15mm fisheye. Ah! And some polarizers.
Feedback
Bring a tripod, but remember there's not so much space to place it.
