Behind The Lens

Location
Bregagh Road, Ballymoney, Belfast, Ireland
Time
7.30am
Lighting
I would recommend the morning golden hour so you catch the shadows from the trees, or a clear moon light night.
Equipment
Sony Alpha A77 with 16-50mm kit lense
Inspiration
Recently used in the game of thrones there has been alot of buzz about this place lately. It truly is amazing as no other trees in the area look like this, a freak of nature.
Editing
Some slight tweaks to contrast and colour corrections in light room, but that's about it.
In my camera bag
Sony Alpha A77 with 16-50mm kit lens, remote trigger, tripod, Sigma APO DG 70-300mm lense, Samyang 12mm-16mm lense, ND and grad filters, polariser, flash ring, spare batteries.
Feedback
Your going to need to be patient and get their early to avoid pesky tourists ????
