Behind The Lens

Location
Ribeira da Janela, Porto Moniz, Madeira Island, Portugal
Time
Sunrise
Lighting
The Ribeira da Janela is found lodged in one of the longest valleys of Madeira and its name comes from a rock that has a window that is located at the end of the stream. On a visit to this fantastic place in 2014 I had already this idea in mind to try to execute. Had tried before but the result has not as i wanted ... the second time I hit it:) The sun perfectly embodies this metaphor, from Mahatma Gandhi, just like phoenix reborn from the ashes ... day after day.
Equipment
Canon 5D Mark II + Canon 16-35 F22, ISO 100 and 2" exposure With Nisi Soft 2 stops Manfrotto Tripot Remote shutter
Inspiration
Had it in my mind for a whille...just had to wait for the right oportunity.
Editing
I did. Contrast, colour correction, lens correction, sharp and sellective darkning.
In my camera bag
Canon 5D Mark II + Canon 16-35 Canon 50 1.8 Canon 71-200 2.8 ND filters Remote Shutter Cleanning stuff
Feedback
Whait for the right time, no edit or post production can substitute that!
