Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Topsham on the River Exe in Devon, England. Topsham used to be the main port for the city of Exeter.
Time
I took this quite late in the day as I was on my way home from work & decided to stop off to see if there was anything worth photographing.
Lighting
The light was beginning to fade as the weather was turning a bit stormy. I was on the opposite bank of the river from the old house boats.
Equipment
This was taken on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150.
Inspiration
I have watched these boats slowly deteriorate over a number of years. They always make a good subject using the water's reflections, & the marker buoys providing the leading line.
Editing
Not a lot of post processing was required here, just a little lighting on the exposure & cropping.
In my camera bag
I'm a very lazy photographer & generally only carry my camera. I take it everywhere with me so has to be lightweight. There is a tripod in my car but I rarely take it out.
Feedback
My main advice has always be observation & patience. I watch & wait in a lot of cases. These boats are changing all the time as they decay & I have images of various stages thought this process.
