Behind The Lens

This shot was taken in the stunning Peak District National Park in an area known as the Roaches.
We had been on the Roaches most of the afternoon and early evening looking for some good locations to photograph. As the sun started to set i was hoping for the sun to illuminate the rock formations on the Roaches.
As the sun started to set a cloud bank also moved in so the intended shot of the rocks illuminated by the sunset didn't happen.
This was shot with my Canon 5D mk 111 and the Canon 24-105mm lens, and a Lee ND Grad filter, i had my camera mounted on a tripod due to the low light levels,
As my intended photograph was not going to happen this night i turned to talk to my friend about heading back down to the car, i spotted this shot with the sun on the horizon and my friend still trying to get the shots he was after, so i quickly spun the camera round a took a number of shots
The post processing was done in photoshop were i had to blend two images together one for the foreground and the other for the sky
In my camera bag
The first thing i always pack part from my camera is my compass and map. Second are my lenses i always take my Sigma !5mm fisheye, Canon EF 17-40 Canon EF 70-200 f2.8 and my Canon EF 24-70 f2.8, these lenses give my the total reach i need for most situations. Finally in go my filters ND grad filters and ND filters and circular polariser
I always try and research the area i am taking photographs of, it will give you more time taking pictures than looking for pictures, i think planning is the key to any landscape photo the more you know about the area and intended shot the better. Always look around even when you get to your intended location you never know what will present its self behind you. I always use a tripod and shutter release
