Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at the famous Flysch of Zumaia, on the coast of the Spanish Basque country. The spectacular cliffs of the coast hide a unique natural treasure: millions of years of geological history written in successive rock strata, due to the continuous action of the sea have been uncovered and show us more than 60 million years of history Earth and invites us to discover, for example, the thin layer of black color that shows the impact of a large asteroid and the mass extinction of the dinosaurs 65 million years apoximadamente ago.
Time
This photograph is done first thing in the morning, the only chance I had to do it. As for my decision I did not consider the tides, and after a trip of 800 miles just to make these photographs, I was a little disappointed. When the tides are removed is the only time you can take these photographs, the remaining time is covered by the waters of the Cantabrian Sea.
Lighting
The lighting use is natural, that gave me the room, it was a very cloudy day and I was characteristic seeking a strong drama, so if derecheando the histogram to lift the shadows without burning the highlights.
Equipment
This photograph was taken with my dear old fellow Canon EOS 40D, this poor a little old lady, but my economy is not in favor of getting a full frame, as is my desire. Use as always my tripod Vanguard brand. Always use the 50mm lens or 17-50mm but these trips with me the SUV Tamron 18-270mm for its focal range. I did not know is that it was the last time with me, when you perform these photographs died of a blow wave and rocks.
Inspiration
Towards long wanted to make these photographs, knew the details of this part of the Cantabrian coast and its characteristics, it is also a place of worship of photographers in the area. Too bad not to think about the issue of tides and schedules, would have enjoyed more than this trip.
Editing
I always shoot in RAW and edit my photos with Lightroom. In this case finished editing with photoshop using filters Nik Collection, because he wanted to give all possible dramatic photograph.
In my camera bag
I always try to carry the essentials in my backpack, my back thanks you, and as the journey prepare my material. My Canon EOS 40D is always with me naturally, plus 50mm lens must for me, a 10-20mm, 17-50mm and one 105mm 2.8. In addition to a tripod Vanguard, a set of neutral density filters, polarizing filter, and filters degraded, and of course a powerful flashlight to guide me through the places I visit.
Feedback
I'm not very keen on giving advice in photography, I think it's best live experiences and learn from failures, but if I had to give some serious not improvise in these photographs, we must take into account everything we can occur when you make these kinds of pictures, just because you have no chance, or after a long journey for a moment to photograph, become a bit disappointed not to have thought of all the elements needed to make your photographs.
