I used a 105mm macro lens. Honestly I didn't do much at all to get this shot. I went out when the sun was starting to set. Thats why the light seems to come from the side and not from the top. Also I set my white balance to cloudy or shade. Not because it looks right but because I like how it looks, and it helps me visualize what the final image will be when I look at the preview on the camera. Also I used aperture priority mode and auto iso. That way I don't have to waste time on controlling the exposure (I had very limited time because the sun was going down). Maybe looking at the exif information on the bottom of the page will help.
