Behind The Lens

Location
This image was taken early one morning at Snoqualmie Falls near the town of Snoqualmie Washington. This is a major tourist spot in the area but if you go there early many times you will be by yourself to enjoy the beauty and serenity of this place.
Time
This was taken in the early morning just after daybreak.
Lighting
The lighting was unusual as the sunrise was illuminating straight down the river to the falls and as it provided some soft light to the clouds and mist.
Equipment
Canon 5D Mark III,Canon 24-70mm lens, Gitzo tripod, Really Right Stuff ballhead.
Inspiration
I visit this spot often but the unusual lighting really inspired me to try to capture this glorious scene.
Editing
I used Aperture and the Nik plugin detail extractor to give some depth and detail to the image.
In my camera bag
Canon bodies and several Canon lenses. 5D Mark III, 7d Mark II. 24-70mm, 70-200mm 16-35mm
Feedback
Use a sturdy tripod, good lens, low ISO, mirror lockup and a cable release.
