Behind The Lens

Location
South of Canyonlands National Park in Utah
Time
It was in the late afternoon/early evening, not quite dusk yet.
Lighting
Lighting was pretty good. The sun was not high enough in the sky to make the snow bright, and I liked the blueish tone of that time of day. There was enough light to make the bluff stand out.
Equipment
I used a Canon EOS REBEL T2i. 18-55 lens. No tripod or flash. I actually shot this out the window of my car.
Inspiration
There is something so beautiful about snow in a desert atmosphere. I loved the bluff and how it stood out and the snow, with the curved road next to the fence. Just everything drew me in as a whole.
Editing
Yes, I did do post processing with the sky. The sky was nothing spectacular, more washed out and plain. So I added the sky from a picture I took elsewhere. It just added a lot more flair to the photograph. A punch of needed color. I also clarified and sharpened the picture as a whole.
In my camera bag
Now I use a Nikon D 7100. I retired my old Canon and use it as my back up. I have a 55-250 Nikor lens and a 40 mm Macro fixed lens (Nikor) as well. I carry my Manfrotto tripod when I know I'll be doing specific photos. Other than that, that's pretty much it.
Feedback
It's all being at the right place when lighting is really good. Depending on what mood you are trying to set, lighting is a high priority. This picture was literally taken from my car and not really thought out as much as many pictures I have taken. Most of the work I did was post processing. So if you have knowledge on post processing, then that is a plus for something like this. I think you do need a tripod, or like I used the door of the car.
