Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo at Maeda Flats beach in Okinawa, Japan.
Time
Sunset
Lighting
The clouds and the shading effect of the coral outcropping required me to play with the settings a bit.
Equipment
Canon 40d, canon efs 55-250mm lens, and a small tripod. I had biked to the beach on a whim, so I didn't have a lot of gear on me.
Inspiration
I mainly went to the beach just to think, and I had thought maybe I would take a few sunset photos. When I saw the trajectory of the sun would take it behind the opening in the outcropping I knew I had to stay to capture it.
Editing
No post processing
In my camera bag
I've changed my setup recently to be more minimalistic, and I no longer have this camera. I now carry my canon 7d mk ii with a tamron 16-300mm lens, an extra battery, a cleaning cloth, and a micro tripod.
Feedback
Timing and patience is everything. If it looks like a good shot will be possible after a while, be willing to wait. And carry an extra battery!
