Behind The Lens

Location
Dante's view in Death Valley, California
Time
Sunrise
Lighting
It was a beautiful crisp night that lead up to a warm desert sunrise. I waited until the sun was just above the hill as its started the day painting the valley floor.
Equipment
I love my Nikon D800 with my favorite landscape lens, Nikkor 16-35mm mounted on my sturdy Manfrotto tripod that I have had for over 15 years still looks new.
Inspiration
Sunrise and sunsets are my favorite time of day as most photographers. I try to capture one sunrise and sunset from all my travels around the world. I was catching some nightscapes at Dante's view that night, and stayed and enjoy the icing on the cake of this sunrise.I
Editing
I process out of Lightroom and Photoshop. I tend to blend exposures using Aurora and Photoshop.
In my camera bag
My Nikon D800 is with me at all times. I tend to bring a few lens because, You never know know what the day will bring. I have a peak design messenger bag that holds My "Big boy" 80-200mm f/2.8, My 16-35mm f4.5 and "Baby boy" the new member a 14-24, I love this lens for astrophotography! remote shutter for time-lapse and night photography. Manfrotto tripod.
Feedback
Always have a little strong coffee! with backup thermos. No seriously, its good stuff. Especially if you are not a morning person. Get there early, an hour or so before light hits the horizon. Scout a location in the light, or research on google earth and use the Photographer's Ephemeris or Photopills to locate where the sun rises or where will it set and at what time. Bracket images to balance landscape with the sky. Blend in Photoshop or other HDR software.
