Behind The Lens

Location
This is a short road just off Sir Francis Drake Blvd in Point Reyes National Seashore.
Time
Taken Dec 7, 2014 late morning.
Lighting
There was a high Marine Layer overhead so I underexposed because of the somewhat bright cloud background.
Equipment
With this shot I used a Nikon D610 with a 16-35mm Nikon lens on a tripod.
Inspiration
For this shot I wanted to capture the grander of the Cyprus Trees and the texture of the road so I put my tripod to it's lowest setting and lay flat on the ground to take the photo.
Editing
I processed this in LR and used a plugin from On1.
In my camera bag
I usually carry 16-35 and 80-400 Nikon lenses. I also carry an assortment of ND filters and tripod.
Feedback
This is a great road and tunnel shot with the giant Cyprus Trees and can be taken in either direction.
