Behind The Lens

Location
This lake is situated in Verulamium park in St Albans, UK
Time
it was around 2am
Lighting
I was on my way home after a party, this lighting is all natural and it was this, that persuaded me to try and capture the scene. It took some will power as I was cold and very tired.
Equipment
Canon DSLR and short length zoom. It was quite a long exposure, I didn't have a tripod, but I found a very convenient rubbish bin to rest my camera on. I think I put my camera on manual and used the bulb setting to achieve the correct exposure.
Inspiration
It was all about the surreal lighting, without this, the image would be nothing.
Editing
There was very little post processing, just a small amount of colour boosting.
In my camera bag
I was on a night out, I simply had a camera and a wide angle zoom lens.
Feedback
Take your camera everywhere, you never know when something like this will crop up.
