Behind The Lens

Location
This Photo has been getting a lot of attention on social media lately, I see it popping up everywhere, so I thought i would give its back story. I took this photo While snowboarding on Grouse Mountain nearly 10 years ago. It was an overcast and very snowy late afternoon, the conditions (for snowboarding) were really good, then the clouds opened up at twilight to reveal Vancouver city in all its glory. It was not yet dark, this is why the clouds are glowing blue from the top and they have the warm city glow from underneath. The trees were full of snow and lit up by the ski resort. It was a lucky moment, right place right time! I have been to Grouse Mountain many times since and I have some great shots from up there but not with the same impact. Thank you for Sharing and liking this image! This image can be purchased here: http://pierre-leclerc.pixels.com/featured/vancouver-city-panorama-from-grouse-mountain-pierre-leclerc-photography.html

In my camera bag
Now i shoot with the amazing Canon 5dsr, so much details in every photo!. And Canon L lenses, one of my favorite is the 16-35 mm f4 is.
Feedback
You need a bit a luck for the elements to come together, all you can do is be out there and ready to shoot when they do.
