Fantastic!

Behind The Lens

Location
On my front yard in Larnaca, Cyprus
Time
It was late afternoon.
Lighting
No external lighting source was used other than the bright light of the moon and the warm light of the street lamps on the palm tree
Equipment
Camera: Nikon D200 Lens: Nikkor 18-200 3.5-5.6/f Tripod: Monfrotto
Inspiration
we were sitting out on my front yard with a friend smoking and discussing about life when suddenly i looked up to see the smoke that i had just exhaled and there it was. Stairing at me. A big full moon with a huge bright Halo around it. Until that day i had never seen a Halo in my country. I runned into the house and took the first camera i could get my hands on. Until i had set up the tripod the halo started fading away but it was just enough to be captured in the still. The palm tree was just in the way but it worked out eventually pretty well.
Editing
It went through a bit of post processing but very light. Redused the saturation a little and pumped up the clarity and contrast in Lightroom
In my camera bag
Nikon D4S Nikon D700 Nikon D810 Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 Macro 2x Nikon SB-800 Speedlights Tripods, Triggers etc.
Feedback
The only advice i have to give is that if you love what you do and you invest time and effort in it, you do not have to plan a good shot. Let yourself look around and you will see great shots staring at you. Things you would never believe that could be photographed will astonish you in the best of ways.
