Wonderful black and white of a road to nowhere. Kind of gives the feel of not getting anywhere. voted.

Behind The Lens

Location
Monument Valley
Time
Around 11 o'clock AM
Lighting
That day the natural light was gorgeous, so I was stopping the car every other scenic spot to take pictures. The dream of every photographer I would say.
Equipment
I used my Nikon D3 S together with the Nikon 24-70mm f2,8 and my wind-jacket as support of the camera. As polarizer filter I used a Tiffen one.
Inspiration
While I was driving I realized I was completely alone in the valley, so I thought to take some pictures from different angles and positions and of course as well in center of the road. I like to take BW photos as well and when I looked the horizon I immediately switched the camera on the BW setting.
Editing
I normally use curves in PS to enhance the contrast, especially with the black & white pictures.
In my camera bag
In this trip I had the Nikon D3 S and the Nikon D600. As lenses the Sigma Fish-eye 15mm f2,8, the Nikon 24-70mm f 2,8, the C. Zeiss (old silver series) 135 f4 Triotar with M42 adapter, the Tamron 350mm f5,6 catadioptric. Tiffen polarizer filters. As tripod I had the Manfrotto 055CX.
Feedback
I recommend to any photographer to plan a trip in the Monument Valley/Lake Poweel/Canyonlands area. It's really a scenic and funny trip with the opportunity to shoots thousands of great pictures any time of the year in any weather conditions.
