Behind The Lens

Location
That photo was taken in place called Dark Hadges in Co. Antrim, Ireland
Time
There was afternoon , something about 5 pm
Lighting
Last summer my wife and I decided to go to the northern part of Ireland - we wanted to visit counties Donegal, Antrim and Down. Before holidays I read about a few interesting places in this part of the island. One of them was the iconic place called 'Dark Hedges'. I saw a few photos of this place, so I decided to go over there and take my own photo of it. We were in a place called Bushmills and we wanted to take photos of the town and its distillery. Unfortunately, that day I saw the biggest rain in my life! That meant that we could not take any shots in the town. So I said to my wife that we should go 11 miles from Bushmills and see what the Dark Hedges look like. When we reached the Dark Hedges it stopped raining. There were no people around, so I took my Canon 5d MII with 70-200mm f/2.8, put it on a tripod, installed an ND8 filter and shot a few times with different aperture. At home I chose the photo with f=9 and 4-second exposure, because these two values gave me the best picture with absolutely fantastic contrast and sharpness!
Equipment
I am Canon user , on that day I used Canon 5d M2 with 70-200mm f/2.8 with tripod and ND8 gray filter
Inspiration
That is very damous place in Northern Ireland so to take that photo was pne of my points on my holidays plan.
Editing
Yes, i used Aperture 3 and NIK Silver effex pro software.
In my camera bag
I always have got with me Canon 5d M2 + 3 lanses (35, 50 , 135 mm) and of course spare battery and memo cards ( always - i mean ALWAYS , even if i go for a shopping :-) )
Feedback
Plan what do You want to shoot , read about it, look on photos of different photographers, go there and take a shot :-)
