WHAT CAMERA, LENS AND SETTINGS DID YOU USE TO CAPTURE THIS STUNNING SHOT?
Canon EOS 5DS, 11-24mm lens at 11mm, 5mins, ISO 320, f8.
HOW DID YOU DECIDE ON THE COMPOSITION?
I got to the gorge and drove up and down a few times, pulling in at certain points to have a look around. I spotted some cars going around this bend, which I now know is Horseshoe Bend, so I clambered up the side of the hill to have a better look. There was not much light in the gorge, and it was at that point I realised I was going to need the torch (which was still in the car), so I went back down the hill [to get it]. I’m glad I did.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT THE IMAGE?
The mountain climbers. I think when they turned up and started climbing in that spot, it added so much to the image and proves just how lucky you can get as a photographer, if you keep getting out there. A great sky, nice light or some climbers with their lights on.
DID YOU DO MUCH POST-PROCESSING?
Not much – I have a love-hate relationship with my computer, so I like to get my image right in-camera. I asked the climbers if it was alright to flash the torch over towards them. I was so worried I might blind them while I was light painting the gorge. Upload your images to our online gallery now for your chance to be printed in the magazine.
