I like the sunburst effect happening with not too much lens flare! Nice.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo at the Grand Canyon (exactly which part I cannot recall) hiking through to a ledge after watching the sunrise.
Time
I want to say this was about an hour after the sun had full risen. The sun was very intense, and pretty blinding when not covered by trees.
Lighting
The lighting here is all natural and only took proper positioning to take full advantage of.
Equipment
I used my Canon 60D and my kit lens for this shot - freehand as well.
Inspiration
I was so struck by the wonder of the world after watching the sunrise, I kept finding little moments to capture as we were hiking right after. This ismy favorite one of those moments.
Editing
Not really at all for this shot, I believe I bumped up the exposure just a tad, but nothing else.
In my camera bag
My Canon 60D, my 50mm, kit lens, and my 85mm.
Feedback
Chase the light! Look low! This shot came about quite organically, and was only discovered by appreciating the world around me.
