Behind The Lens

Location
Gooseberry Falls State Park on Lake Superior, in Minnesota
Time
Sunrise
Lighting
The sun had just come up and was reflecting on a thin coat of ice
Equipment
Camera was a Nikon D800, lens was a Nikon 14-24, Really Right Stuff ball head on a Gitzo tri-pod
Inspiration
I was at a winter photography workshop on Lake Superior with several other photographers. The light, the shoreline and the tree branches struck me as being a great image.
Editing
It's an HDR photograph; I thought this was the best process because it could accommodate both the deep shadows and the bright light of the rising sun.
In my camera bag
One of my favorite lenses is the Nikon 14-24; whenever I'm taking landscape pictures I always have it on hand
Feedback
When I like a location I will return to it several times; It will look different daily depending on light, time of day, weather and so forth. If you don't get the picture you want the first time, go back a different day at a different time and try again
