Many thanks for your comment

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Banff in the Canadian Rockies. I found a spot where there were great reflections of the mountains and trees in the slow flowing stream. Although I took many shots I liked the long exposure one the most.
Time
From memory it was fairly early in the morning but not at sunrise. (Family holiday in a camper van and they would not have been pleased if I'd got up any earlier!)
Lighting
Wish I'd been there at sunrise or sunset!
Equipment
It was taken with a Nikon D810 and a Nikon 16-35 F4 lens. I had a Lee landscape polariser in place as well. The Tripod was a Giottos Silk Road carbon (model YTL8254) that I've had for a long time. It's great for travel as it's so light and can get pretty low if needed.
Inspiration
I love the out doors. The peace and serenity of slow flowing water with a background of mist, mountains and trees is amazing.
Editing
Just some minor contrast and saturation adjustments in photoshop.
In my camera bag
Body Nikon D810 Nikon lenses 16-35 F4, 24-70 F2.8, 70-200 F2.8, 105 F2.8 Micro, 50 F1.8. Lee Filters - NDs, ND grads hard and soft, Little & Big Stopper, Landscape polariser
Feedback
Research your proposed location. Use photography planning apps. Get out early, focus on getting that one image and enjoy!
