Behind The Lens

This is Emerald lake in Yoho National Park in Canada.
It was the most far point I could reach in one-day trip to Banff and Yoho NP from Calgary. The picture was taken right after sunset in late January. Snowfall ended just few minutes ago and the silence was perfect.
When you travel for just a single day you can't choose the lighting and weather. But when you're in mountains the weather can change unexpectedly and before me came there the dark clouds went away to show some blue sky behind translucent mist. To be honest,, this place is so magnetic you can take good pictures almost any light.
This was shot on Fujifilm X-T3 and XF10-24 lens on a tripod. Nothing else.
I had a dream. Seeing pictures of that hut in internet was like a bright star shining before me, waiting calmly forever when I travel from another side of the planet. I'm still jealous to people live close to there.
Few sliders were moved in LR to adjust WB and the HDR technique was used here to adjust the contrast between the house with lights and its surrounds.
In my camera bag
I have a backpack with a camera (Fuji X-T3) and few lenses: 3 major zooms (XF10-24 XF16-55 + XF50-140) and my favorite prime, XF23 (eq. 35 mm). I like to shoot landscapes so I have filters too but use them rarely, for hard light I use HDR most of time. Of course the tripod is a must have thing.
When you go to a winter park you'd get a proper set of cleaning tools: a clean cloth is better than a Lenspen when water drops on your lenses. Take as many batteries as you can and keep them warm.
