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.
