Just up my street this, stunning image. Just wondering if you used two separate exposures? long exposure for the sky and a faster speed to capture the landscape. Either way it's a great shot

it looks like the shot in the Secret life of Walter Mitty where Ben Stiller is about to make an epic longboard ride down a beautiful road in Iceland. Simply Awesome

I was at this location three days in a row. The first day I ended up soaking wet in pouring rain. On day two I had to tie my camera to a massive rock because of super strong winds and I also took this picture while I was witnessing the rad colors in the sky. The third day was my favorite though. Actually I was pretty happy with this shot already, but I wanted to get a different angle. So again, I was hiking around for a while, looking for a better composition. But fog came in and I decided to call it a day, walked back to the trail and somehow intuitively looked up to the sky and saw a huge golden eagle right above my head. It was so close and impressive, I almost got scared and for a moment I was just stunned by it's majestic beauty. I watched it fly in circles and then eventually disappear in the fog over the lake. That was just epic and a moment to remember!

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo near my home "Haslital" in the bernese alps in Switzerland on a hike after work.
Time
After I left work at 5 I hiked up to this cool place, waiting for the sunset in fall.
Lighting
Those valley in the alps are still difficult for me to shoot, although it's what I shoot mostly. The sun sets early, usually before the clouds light up, so getting the perfect light is all about finding the right place.
Equipment
I used my Lumix GH5 with the 12-60mm on a Benro Travel Angel tripod.
Inspiration
I love mountains, I love glaciers and I love nature. So living in this beautiful area is all the inspiration I need. I often stand on viewpoints just looking through those massive valleys. It makes my hart jump. So me standing in front of this scenery is somehow staged, but somehow it isn't.
Editing
My surreal style of my images needs a lot of post processing, I shot multiple exposure brackets for the foreground a long exposure for the sky and a "selfie" for me on the rock.
In my camera bag
On one day trips I have with me: Lumix GH5 Camera, 12-60mm f2.8, 7-14mm f2.8, 45-175mm f4, ND Filter Kit, Benro Travel Angel tripod, remote release, cleaning kit, 4 spare batteries.
Feedback
Use google earth for a first check of the area. Then go out as much as possible, enjoy nature and shoot the things that makes you feel good. I usually don't search for leading lines or compositional elements. Shoot what your heart tells you.
