Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in photo the Tasermiut Fjord in Greenland.
Time
This photo is perhaps my fondest memory of the sailing expedition in Greenland. I remember waking up at 2:30 am to get ready for stepping into the little rubber dinghy which would bring us ashore. The valley was in pitch darkness and we could barely see ahead of the boat lights, but high above us in the sky the Northern Lights danced beyond the high peaks. Once ashore, we started the steep ascend and hiked for what seemed to be hours arriving at this location a good 40 minutes prior to dawn. This is my favourite image from that day. The anticipation of the views and the adventures on the way we had with the high solid walls playing hide and seek in the Northern Lights, crossing a wooden rope bridge over a waterfall, slipping and slithering in the frigid -16 degrees celcius and to witness perhaps the most glorious sunrise ever is why this is my favourite photo.
Lighting
It was a gorgeous morning with just enough cloud cover to create the moody sunrise every landscape photographer dreams of. For a first visit to this location, we were truly blessed with a beautiful gold sunrise.
Equipment
My gear on this location included the Canon 5D Mark IV, 16-35mm f/4 Lens, Nisi Filters, Really Right Stuff Tripod
Inspiration
Travelling to Greenland was a dream come true. I had imagined grand vistas and majestic landscapes and I found more grandeur than I could have ever imagined. These solid walls rising so high added to the grandeur and seemed almost magical. This particular location was the most challenging to get and arriving here in pitch darkness without any sense of direction added to the drama and challenge. Ascending at a non-stop pace, I recall hearing the water hurtling past us in a rush constantly. Until the sky started changing colours in anticipation of the sunrise I really didn't know what I would be seeing - the blindfold had been lifted and I was awestruck with this scene!
Editing
Yes, landscape photos do require post-processing. This image is no exception. I have had to process the image twice on Photoshop - for the foreground and background and used luminosity masks as part of my process.
In my camera bag
I usually carry the Canon 5D Mark IV and 5DS R along with these Canon L Series lenses: 16-35mm f/4, 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8. I also have the Samyang 14mm f/2.4 and a Tamron 100-600mm f/3.5 lenses. Recently I have added the Sony A7 RIII to my photographic equipment with the 12-24mm f/4 lens. I'm using the metabones adapter to use the Canon lenses on Sony. Along with two tripods, Nisi Filters, Remote release, I also carry a lot of spare batteries.
Feedback
I believe in planning all my trips to the last final detail and I also know that at any given moment, all of these plans could fail or would have to be swapped around to suit mother nature. Being patient and staying calm is the key. When you step out to capture moments in nature, you have to appreciate everything that nature rolls out. Sometimes nature is kind and she will let you have your way and that's when a well planned trip is true gift to yourself. Then there are times when nature takes control and you know you have to work with the elements and this is when staying calm will benefit you. In either scenario, patience is the key to that successful trip.
