Oh what a wondrous sight! Simply stunning! Magnificent use of the light, fantastic break of the rule of thirds, and a marriage made in heaven with the colours. In case you haven't guessed ... I really like this big time! :)

Behind The Lens

Location
This is Point Vicente Lighthouse in Palos Verdes California.
Time
I shot this one afternoon before the sun set. The colors were fantastic and the sky was full of clouds.
Lighting
I used natural lighting only.
Equipment
This was taken with my Nikon D7100, hand held with my Nikon Dx 18-200 lens.
Inspiration
This lighthouse has a long history for guarding this rocky shore. The area becomes very foggy at night. I used to hear the fog horn from it when I was younger. It is a true guardian of the coast.
Editing
I used lightroom to bring back the color and sharpen it up.
In my camera bag
I have the D7100 dx camera D810 FX camera 70-200 2.8 Nikon lens Tamron 150 - 600 G2 18-120 Nikon 100 macro sigma 85 1.8 Nikon 50 1.8 Nikon 18-200 Nikon DX Phottix indura500 strobe And various other lenses and accessories.
Feedback
The sky makes the background stand out. The position of the sun brings different colors to light. Watch the area you want to shoot and see the difference in mornings and evenings. Also the time of year will bring different lighting and sky texture.
