Behind The Lens

Location

The town of Burmis is long gone. However there is a tree close to the highway that (depending who you talk to) could be up to 700 years old. It is long dead and weathering the seasons with grace. It has actually fallen over, re-erected by the locals with some old iron anchors. Vandals cut one of it's main branches which was also re-attached with a visible brace (the only thing I photoshopped).

Time

This was later in the afternoon one summer day.

Lighting

Just natural light, utilized the shadow enhancing capabilities of HDR.

Equipment

Nikon D800, tripod, Nikon 24-70mm 2.8

Inspiration

It's a special little tree, I like visiting it.

Editing

HDR of 5 bracked shots in Photomatix.

In my camera bag

Nikon D800, D200, Trinity of F 2.8 Nikon lenses. Nikon 85mm 1.8, Nikon 50mm 1.4, 10.5mm fisheye (D), 18-105mm Digital kit lens for the D200. Tripods, polarizing filters, remote trigger
