Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Wilderness, a town in South Africa’s Western Cape Province, on a coastal stretch known as the Garden Route.
Time
This was early morning, looking out over the lakes in Wilderness as the sun was lighting up the sky over the mountains.
Lighting
As with most landscape photos we are blessed by what nature gives us. The light was perfect, all I had to do is run for the camera.
Equipment
I grabbed my Canon 7D MkII which at the time had the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS II USM Lens on. I never thought it to be a landscape lens, but what I was aiming at was far enough away. I used a Manfrotto tripod which was at the ready for Bird photos.
Inspiration
Nature as it was when I walked out on the balcony.
Editing
Basic color correction.
In my camera bag
Canon 7D Mk II Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS II USM Canon EF 85mm f/1.4 L IS USM Canon EF 24-70mm f/1.4 L IS USM
Feedback
Keep an eye on nature early morning and late afternoon.
