Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken in Liguria, Italy, in a beautiful seaside village: Varigotti. This former fishing village is very small and cozy, and in addition to having one of the most beautiful sea in Italy, is very photogenic.
Time
Happened almost by accident, we went to sleep on the beach with my friends ( of course I brought my d700 ), and so around 5 in the morning I said let's go and see what the sunrise.. It was one of the most beautiful morning of my life. The peace, the beauty of nature, its colors.. I can say that is one of my favorite photos. Was taken 19 july at 05.49 am
Lighting
As regards the light, that morning was really nice. Earlier little lazy but then came up with almost an explosion of warm and cool colors; some clouds helped me to lengthen the shutter speed to give more sense of motion.
Equipment
This was shot on a Nikon D700 with 18-35 3.5 - 4.5 g Nikkor. Tripod Manfrotto.
Inspiration
My passion is landscape photography. The silence, the peace and beauty of Varigotti inspired this my shot. It was the second time I came back and did not expect more than you can take that shot. Let's say it was just as I imagined it!
Editing
Initially settled balance with Lightroom and made ??some adjustments. Then I mixed with Ps two pictures to give tone to both the foreground and its background. With some levels I worked on saturation, sharpness and contrast.
In my camera bag
I always carry my nikon d700, a 18-35 f 3.5 - 4.5 nikkor and a Nikkor 80-200 f 2.8. The Manfrotto tripod, a series of filters Lee gnd. Bigstopper and the little stopper Lee. My backpack lowenpro great because compact and lightweight yet roomy.
Feedback
Not much to say! If you love landscape photography you'll understand how it feels to be there at that time.. joy, adventure, cold, passion, tenacity ..The best way is to plan before the shot so be prepared to find, in the right place at the right time..
