Thank you. I truly appreciate the compliment.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken from a bus on the highway from Lake Tahoe to Reno. We were just outside of Lake Tahoe after a winter blizzard had prevented safe car travel.
Time
This was taken in late morning.
Lighting
Natural light, reduced by tinting on the bus windows.
Equipment
This photo was taken handheld with a Canon EOS 10D and a Canon EF 24-105 f/4L lens at a 55mm focal length, f/11 and 1/500th second exposure.
Inspiration
A business conference in Lake Tahoe had been halted by the blizzard. Attendees were instructed to leave their rental cars at the hotel, and the company chartered a bus to bring everyone safely to the Reno airport for flights to our respective homes. The landscape around us was other-worldly, and I was fortunate to have one of my cameras with me. The shot had to be taken from a moving bus, which made it more challenging.
Editing
Very little post-processing was done: just cropping, conversion to B&W, and highlight and shadow enhancement in Adobe Lightroom.
In my camera bag
My Canon EOS 5D Mark IV always has my Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM lens mounted on it. That is my go-to lens for the majority of my photos. I also carry several lenses: Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM, Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM, Canon EF 24-105 f/4L IS USM and a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM. I try to shoot with natural light all the time, but on those occasions where I need an external light source, I use either a Neewer CN-216 LED panel or a Canon Speedlite 580EX. I have tripods by Slik, 3Pod and Manfrotto. I have a Canon EOS 10D, a Canon EOS 30D and a Canon EOS 7D, all of which I still have and use as appropriate.
Feedback
Always have your camera with you and recognize photo opportunities when they are not expected.
