Beautiful photo. Can you please explain how this relates to clinate change?

Thanks my friend! it relates to climate change due to its colors. One of the reasons for this plenty of tones is climate change. Nowadays it passes more time during the year with less snow. I mean that nowadays it snows and melts over and over, but in the past, most of time it was just covered by snow.

Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was taken in Vinicunca in Cusco, above Andes Cordillera in Peru. This view is at the end of the trail, a famous destination known as "Rainbow Mountain".

Time

It was between 12 and 13pm, the sun was rising but it was very cold, because of its high altitude and also 'cause this precious colorful mountain is surrounded by snow peaks nearby.

Lighting

Well this click took me a lot of effort since it was made after over 7km walking between 4000 and 5000 meters of altitude.

Equipment

I used a simple equipment that I usually carry with me while travelling: an old Canon 60d + zoom lens. No tripod, filters or anything.

Inspiration

Achieve this place and come back with a non obvious click was what I wanted the most. So after taking a few posed shots of my girlfriend I started to think about compositions with the people in action around and this was one of my favorites.

Editing

Not much, just a little of color calibration and a little decrease of saturation.

In my camera bag

Well I'm not a very rich photographer so usually I carry a 60d Canon kit with a zoom and a 50mm lenses, plus my new gopro hero 7 black.

Feedback

Be aware of any possibilites around your subject while photographing. Remember that photography is a language and its power to communicate. So be creative and original!
