Behind The Lens

Location
As I live a bit outside the big cities, I get to see some lovely views of our nature every day. And down by the water, which I have to pass every day to get to work. It's hard not to stop and grab your camera. Especially when the fog is really dense in the mornings.
Time
Really really early in the morning, when driving to the city for work. I pass all these long piers on my way.
Lighting
Lighting didn't need much thought, as the fog was really dense this early morning. Been waiting for a while for se really dense fog, and this morning I was in luck. Sun is just passing the horizon to the left.
Equipment
Camera used is my canon eos 6d, and the lens was a tamron 24-70, a very sharp lens I must add. Also I had to use a 1000x nd-filter to smooth things out, and of course a sturdy tripod.
Inspiration
Waiting and waiting for the fog to be really dense, because I already knew what kind of shot I wanted. One early morning when driving to work it finally was time, really really dense fog. Had my camera bag with for a long time, so I just hopped out of my car and head down to the water.
Editing
Regular processing on the photo it self, and fine tuning the sharp horizon line.
In my camera bag
At the time I had with me my camera bag with, canon eos 6d, tamron 24-70, sigma 12-24, sigma 70 macro, sigma 70-200, sigma 35 art. One flash, remotes, grey card, teleconverter. And of course random batteries.
Feedback
The thing that really put a smile on my face have been all the testing with the 1000x nd-filter. It can really produce some interesting captures. So much fun!
