Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Hemsedal in Norway. Hemsedal is a small beautiful ski resort up in the mountains in the middle of Norway. I found this little house very close to the road and when I passed it with the car I notice the trees that where growing on the roof.
Time
This special house has been there for years and finely I decided to take pictures of it. That day it was freezing cold and I had to park the car very far from the house and walk in the snow beside the road to get to the spot where I took the photos. I used my gloves with no fingertips on, it was 10 degrees C below 0 and my fingers was totally frozen after a little while. The picture is taken at 12:35 AM
Lighting
The sky was cloudy and there was no sun. Actually the sun never reach down in the valley of Hemsedal before springtime. Therefor the light was very "flat". I used photoshop to make more "live" into the photo.
Equipment
This was shot on a Canon 5D Mark III with an 24-70mm f2.8 lens. No other equipment was involved.
Inspiration
It had been snowing the night before and when I passed the house with the car I notice the heavy snow on the trees and on the roof with ice hanging down around the it. The house gave a kind of glowing feeling and it looked more special than ever. I just felt that I had to capture this feeling and didn't care about the cold at all.
Editing
The light was really "flat" so I lightened the picture up and made more shadows by darken some places. I also made the details stronger.
In my camera bag
When I pack my bag I always choose my 24-70mm lens. This is my favorite lens. I can use it for a lot of different shoots, like portrait, landscape etc. Then my Canon 5D, Mark III ... my little baby. I love to take macro photos so I also bring my Canon 100mm too and my 85mm for portrait that my friend Katherline Lyndia recommended for me and then my 70-200mm that I would love to use more.
Feedback
When I am traveling, I more and more stop and I take the time to go back and investigate what it was that I just saw as a glimpse of my eyes ... The most of the time I have been really lucky........ And then Norway. Norway has the most beautiful nature, seascape and landscape in the world..... I think. I didn't really understand and appresiate it before I start traveling all over the world. Now I know.
