Behind The Lens

Location
Skillman, NJ
Time
Evening.
Lighting
The lighting was perfect for what I wanted. The road was recently paved and I loved the way it went off into the distance seemingly forever.
Equipment
Canon 5d Mark ii, 16-35mm L lens and Alta Pro Tripod.
Inspiration
I drive by this road every day. Its a park now but was once grounds for a hospital for the mentally insane (serious). They recently knocked all the old buildings down and turned it into a park. The way the trees lined the road I thought made for an interesting photograph so I came here one night with my wife to check it all out. I saw how the sun was setting and I thought it looked really cool the way it was setting through the trees so I snapped photos as it set for the evening. This was one my favs.
Editing
Curves, topaz adjust and clarity to up the mid tones a little and hp filter.
In my camera bag
I tend to travel light, lens pen and cloth to keep dust off the lens. Batteries and various filters.
Feedback
We moved to this area a year ago and that first summer all we did was drive around and look for interesting places to photograph. This was one but there were many others. I put my tripod right on the double yellow line and waited for the sun to reflect through the trees in just the right way. When the odd car came by I had to move and then set up again. Hoping that I wouldn't miss that shot. So with something like this, I would say patience is the key word.
