An amazing rustic capture,awesome work :>)

Behind The Lens

Location
This shot was taken in an undisclosed location.
Time
Sunset. The wind picked up and the temperature dropped. It had snowed the previous night.
Lighting
The sun's rays were filter though the nearby trees causing the play of light and shadow.
Equipment
This photo was taken with a camera attached to a tripod, with a detachable lens. ( to be more technical a Sony a850, Minolta 24mm 2.8RS, Manfrotto 055CXPRO3, Acratech GV2 head, and a RRS B2-LR-II quick release plate)
Inspiration
Look at this tree. It begs to be photographed. I just wish some part of it was still living as it is probably 4000+ years old.
Editing
I think I probably used lightroom to clean up the image and make multiple copies to HDR via photomatix pro to improve the exposure levels across the photo.
In my camera bag
Heavy things seemingly. Water bottle, granola, gloves, a warm hat, a head lamp, some nice looking rocks I find along the way, and camera equipment.
Feedback
First try to open the front door of your house. Then amble over to a mode of transportation. Utilize this transport to arrive at a distant location. After arriving, step away from said transport. Look around you for something interesting. Walk toward this interest. Pull out your camera. Making sure the camera is pointed at what has interested you, depress the shutter release as many times as is required to feel satisfied. Now reverse afore mentioned actions to return to the comfort of your domicile.
