Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in a little beach down in Melbourne. I was on a holiday with my Dad and sister and we had gone for a walk when I saw the little stream travelling between the rocks and I couldn't help but love it so I thought I'd try to capture it. This photo was one of the first I took.
Time
It was in the afternoon and it was quite cold but it wasn't very windy so it was great conditions for a walk.
Lighting
I didn't have any lighting with me but the sun was trapped behind the clouds and made the overall image softer which led me to be able to capture it like this.
Equipment
I was using my Canon 700d, a sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens and nothing else.
Inspiration
Whenever I go where this was taken I always have my camera on me because the place always presents itself with fantastic photo opportunities wherever you go. The rocks in particular on this beach are amazing so I'd kept that in mind.
Editing
I shoot my photos on raw mode so it always needs a little bit of touching up but I try never to do anything drastic to the photos. With this I just altered the contrast a little bit and warmed up the colors a little bit.
In my camera bag
If I'm going for photos of nature I always have my 700d with the sigma 10-20 mm lens attached. Then I have my 55-200mm canon lens, my 18-55mm lens as well as a macro extension tube in case there's an interesting insect or plant around.
Feedback
Don't be afraid to get yourself a bit dirty or wet, I was kneeling in a stream when taking this and often find that I need to do a bit of washing after a photo adventure!
