Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was on location in the winter in Germany. I was touring the countryside and saw signposts to the castle. I thought I would chase it down. It was a steep hike down and unfortunately, the inside of the castle was closed.
Time
It was about an hour before dark.
Lighting
It was a cold, flat light from the overcast winter sky. This lended itself to the black and white version.
Equipment
Nikon D600 with 16-35mm lens
Inspiration
It look like a fairytale castle. Something from a Disney cartoon. I love old buildings like castles and cathedrals.
Editing
Converted to black and white using Nik Silver Efex 2
In my camera bag
Camera, lens, hat, gloves, rain cover for camera, lens cloth, black rapid strap, battery, memory card.
Feedback
Walk around as much as possible with a subject like this. Interesting viewpoints may not be the first ones you see.
