Behind The Lens

Location
Plocica, a lighthouse isle, Adriatic (Croatia)
Time
13:24:34
Lighting
Winter, sunny outdoors. Very much light, Daylight WB.
Equipment
SONY F-828, Skylight filter (81B). Hand-held shot, zoomed-in.
Inspiration
I have just broke the sunglasses at the hinge, and looked what to do with the useless thing, since it got broken in a way that could not be repaired. The shape of this Opunzia seemed just about right for this joke...
Editing
Nothing special. The usual stuff only.
In my camera bag
Two cameras. One will have a flexible zoom range, the other has to be waterproof. I carry both in my photo jacket pockets. Other pockets hold spare batteries, filters (CPL,Skylight, and a stack of NDs), also some outdoors thingies I need when wandering in the Outdoors: a lighter or matches, a pocket knife, some length of cord, a flashlight, piece of reflective foil...
Feedback
Being alone in a faraway location means accepting all responsibilities, whatever happens. This isle is utterly unapproachable by any means when the winter weather gets severe, so there are some risks involved. For me, the odds were acceptable at such places, and several times. All sights and photos have managed to outweigh all the latent danger. You might think otherwise, thus if you want to go to such a place, have an earnest talk with yourself prior to the final decision. Be safe, to live long and prosper! :)
