Love this one.

Behind The Lens

Location
The Dark Hedges, Ballymoney, Northern Ireland
Time
I had seen a photo of the Dark Hedges on a brochure and I really wanted to find them. A friend told us where they were but we still had difficulty finding them. I took the photo around midday.
Lighting
As the trees growing over the road put everything in shadow, I found it a little difficult to get the settings of the camera right.
Equipment
I took the photo hand held on a Canon 7D camera using a Canon EF-s 18-200 mm 3.5 lens F5.6 at 187 mm ISO 400 1/200 flash off/didn't fire.
Inspiration
I love photography and try to take as many interesting photos of the places we travel to.
Editing
I can't remember if I did any post processing - maybe lightened the photo a little in Photoshop
In my camera bag
When we travel, we have to travel reasonably light due to weight constrictions on flights from Australia. On this occasion I had my 7D, 18-200 lens, 50 mm 1.4 lens in my camera bag.
Feedback
When you visit any different area, search out the interesting sight by going to the information centre and collecting brochures. As this scene was on a narrow laned road with not too much traffic, I walked up the hill and looked back down the road and waited for an opportunity to take the photo.
