Behind The Lens

Location

Went for an overnight hike on Patscherkofel Mountain near Innsbruck in Tirol Austria. The highway below is the Brenner highway to Italy. There was a lightning storm in Italy at the bottom of the milkyway and Mars on the left was bright.

Time

This was taken around midnight

Lighting

The foreground was lit up by a red warning light on the peak so had to de saturate the foreground.

Equipment

Used a Zeiss Loxia 21mm on the Sony a7r and very happy with the results

Inspiration

I was waiting for clear skies and finally had an oppertunity

Editing

Only did lightroom adjustments with some dodge and burn.

In my camera bag

Canon mostly but when I do longer hikes I go light with my 21mm Loxia and Sony a7r

Feedback

composition more important than gear
