Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was one of many I took at this location..we were so lucky to have a perfect day to do this scenic drive out of Queenstown, South Island of New Zealand. There were so many different places to stop along this road to Glenorchy and I don't think we missed any it was just such a beautiful drive...my photo does not really do it justice!
Time
This particular shot was taken on the return journey so it would have been just after lunch probably around 1.30ish.
Lighting
The sun was shining and not a breath of wind...perfect conditions.
Equipment
There was no particular equipment used...just a point & shoot Olympus UTough 3000.
Inspiration
Magnificent scenery.
Editing
Post processing was very basic...the image was sharpened a touch and the contrast altered a very little.
In my camera bag
This is the first trip away that I carried a few things in my camera bag...I am learning! I have a mini tripod, a cloth to clean the lens & 2 spare charged batteries.
Feedback
I think the scenery & the weather were the main reasons for the quality of this photo.... I did read though that the time of day can have a big influence when taking photos of lakes and this was taken just after lunch.
