The lengthy, open road and the majestic mountains bathing in magical light, create the perfect sense of adventure.

Given the rest of your imagery, quite an adventure was had ! Good for you.
Gorgeous, captivating work.

This is amazing, great shot. I'm almost expecting the Forest Gump character to come running towards the camera.

Stunning photo!

Behind The Lens

I took this photo during sunset in the Argentenian Patagonia, close to El Chalten, near the famous Mt Fitz Roy (visible peak in the photo).
This was taken during sunset or golden hour.
Natural lighting during sunset, the best kind of light!
I used my nikon d810 and nikon 28-70mm lens, handheld.
The cheer size of the mountains as I was driving up the road to El Chalten, made me pull over and take this shot.
I made some adjustments with white balance (shoot in auto), to a slightly warmer tone to reflect the actual scene. Reduced highlights, increased shadows, adjusted the whites and blacks, increased the clarity a bit and voila!
In my camera bag
I always overpack. I carry my d810 with nikon 50mm f1.8, 28-70mm f2.8, 70-200 f2.8 and 14-24mm f2.8. Along with this, I carry nd1000 filters for all my lenses, a cpl filter, wireless remote trigger, flash and my sturdy Benro tripod.
Long straight road heading towards a mountain always provides a very interesting scene. The leading lines (road in this case) leading to a huge prominent background accentuates the wow factor! My big advice would be to notice the leading lines and frame accordingly.
