Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Bigstone Landing, near La Ronge, SK. It was taken in July of 2015 just when the forest fires were starting to get out of hand. Shortly after this photo was taken, we were evacuated from La Ronge for two weeks and only essential workers were permitted to stay.
Time
This photo was taken around 6:00 pm.
Lighting
This is just the natural daylight and the glow from the fires across the lake.
Equipment
This was taken with my Nikon Coolpix P900, no other equipment.
Inspiration
We had been going to the landing to check the progress of the fires on a daily basis and on this day, you could see the bright orange above the trees on one side and then this eerie looking orange sky on the other. I had to capture the image.
Editing
No
In my camera bag
I only carry my camera with me.
Feedback
Persistence. I returned to this spot daily to check the progress of the forest fires and this gave me the opportunity to capture some very cool photos.
