Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in the Canadian Rockies Alberta. Moraine Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes surrounded by the Ten Peaks.
Time
I think we arrived there late morning it was back in September 2007 so cannot be sure. The lighting was just perfect with enough cloud to give some sky interest
Lighting
I used natural lighting
Equipment
I can't remember now what camera I used but I think it was just a small compact
Inspiration
The shear beauty of the place inspired me
Editing
Just a wee bit in photoshop to bring out the colours and contrasts
In my camera bag
spare batteries
Feedback
Make sure there are no people around in a shot like this
