Behind The Lens

Location
In July, winter, on the shore of a roadside lake near Omarama, Canterbury, New Zealand.
Time
Mid afternoon.
Lighting
Soft, muted lighting allowed the subtleties in this landscape to come out.
Equipment
A Nikon P7800. For this shot the zoom setting was 58mm, ISO 100, F8 and shutter 1/100 sec.
Inspiration
The delicate ice encrustations and the mirror surface of the lake – spectacular.
Editing
Adjustments in Camera RAW to bring out detail in light and shadow, then some further fine tuning in PhotoShop.
In my camera bag
I love the mountains, so as little as possible - at present a Nikon D750 camera body, a Nikkor 24-120 small zoom and the 55-300 bigger zoom, a spare battery and beaten up lightweight tripod - good for hiking. If I'm going for a summit then it's even less - a compact Nikon P7800 with mirrorless through the lens digital view finder, full manual operation and RAW file capture - absolutely great when you still want to control your photography but need to keep moving and can't afford to have stuff hanging off you.
Feedback
Have your camera handy. This was an unexpectedly beautiful scene just waiting to be captured at the side of the highway.
