Behind The Lens

Location
I spended one week on Iceland and with me were my best photographer friends. This photo was taken at the for photographers very important Mount Kirkjufell.
Time
We stayed in Reykjavik and it rained there the whole day. However we decided to drive to the Kirkjufell and arrived at about 9pm. No rain, a view clouds, very good light - good decision. First we enjoyed the magnificent landscape and the view to the famous mountain. Previously we knew this place from the internet, finally we stood there and could made some own pictures. We walked around there and looked for some good angles and this picture was taken about 10.45pm on 13th June 2014.
Lighting
I used the natural light from the setting sun behind the Kirkjufell. It was an amazing red which has been reflected in the small lake, too.
Equipment
Canon 70D, Sigma 10-20 mm F4,0-5,6 EX DC HSM, tripod
Inspiration
For a long time it was a dream of me to visit Iceland and in 2014 this dream come true. It was definite for me and my friends, that we need to visit the Kirkjufell, too. And what should I say, we don't regretted our decision until today.
Editing
Yes, I do some corrections in photoshop. I corrected distortion, contrast and colors and I needed to stamp some water spotting, which were on the lens.
In my camera bag
My Canon 70D with my Tokina AT-X 11-16mm f/2,8 Pro DX II and my Canon 50mm F1,8. Some flash cards, filters and often I need my tripod, too.
Feedback
About eight month in advance of our trip we startet to research everything about Iceland and where are the most important spots. The Kirkjufell was one of them, but the Seljalandsfoss, Jökulsarlon and Skogafoss stood on our bucket list, too (and many more). The more you invest in research the more top point of views you will find. And after that, you need to find angles and views, which you don't often see from the subject. Play with aperture and shutter speed and try to create a new picture with your own style.
