Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo on Red Table Road; a 7 mile access road that is only open during summer/fall months due to winter conditions. This is one of my favorite places to go, and the best part is it is very near my home just outside of the Roaring Fork Valley.
Time
This particular morning it was really foggy. The fall colors had just peaked a few days prior, so I knew I HAD TO go up this road! I loaded my kids and camera and we were off. We parked and walked up this stretch of the road to enjoy the aspens and the fog, it really made it magical! I took this picture at 10:33 AM, September 29th, 2016.
Lighting
This stretch of road is located on the dark side of the mountain. Getting there a little later in the morning worked out well, as the sun had just come over the high mountaintop in front of us not too long before. The fog was really thick, it diffused the sunlight perfectly and really helped the colors of the wet surroundings to pop.
Equipment
I took this photo hand held with my Nikon D7000, 18-200mm lens. For this photo: 1/80 sec f/6.3 ISO 125
Inspiration
I remember waking up and seeing the fog outside my bedroom window and getting really excited. Fog in an autumn forest is a heavenly mix. I love the mood it creates, the peace and the silence experienced and the beauty to be found. I could not have asked for a more perfect morning. I feel this photo reflects what I set out to capture perfectly.
Editing
Yes, I do basic editing with Lightroom to bring the RAW image to what I feel is a good representation of what I was looking at. I finished this image with Topaz Adjust to help bring out detail and color - there are just some things Lightroom cannot touch...
In my camera bag
I have a Nikon D7000, a tripod and a small collection of Nikon lenses and filters - 35mm f/1:8, 18-200mm, 50mm and 12-24mm.
Feedback
Living in Colorado over half my life, I've learned the weather can change drastically in minutes, be ready! If you see favorable conditions, don't miss the opportunity, take the chance! Always have your camera ready, there have been times when I really regretted leaving my camera bag/tripod at home. I am very glad I took the time to load up my kids and make the drive, it certainly paid off! Time spent surrounded in beauty and a lovely photo to remember it all.
