Behind The Lens

Location
Taken at the top of the Iztaccihuatl volcano in Mexico; this is the third highest mountain in the country and one of the most beautiful ones, its shape when it's looked from the distance makes reference to a laying woman.
Time
This picture was taken at the sunset after the climbers conquered the summit and were heading back to base camp
Lighting
This picture had not post effects, it was posted as it came from the camera, the colors and saturation were the result of the mix of natural light and luck.
Equipment
For this expedition I used a light Sony 5R camera, handheld and with nothing else at all.
Inspiration
I wanted to take a picture of the glacier and the clouds below, I wanted to show the size of the glacier and also wanted to set the climbers in place, so the timing was perfect as they were going downhill.
Editing
No, anything at all.
In my camera bag
When going to mountain it's important to go light, so now days I carry only a Sony a7RII and a Zeiss Batis 18 lens; a flash and LightCube
Feedback
The best thing anyone can do in this kind of places is to take pictures very early when the sun is just about to go up, and from there you have an hour or so, of very good natural light. Every sunset is different so you can go plenty of times and you'll get nice and different shots. When you go back home just do some post processing of contrast and shadows but nothing exaggerated.
