Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was made in Lochem, the Netherlands, not that far from my home.
Time
I made this photo during a beautiful morning in autumn 2015. I just love these sun rays that you can see during mornings with some fog.
Lighting
Sun rays: I just love them! :)
Equipment
Most of my photos I make using a tripod. I used a Sony NEX-5N camera and a 18-200 lens.
Inspiration
The forest is a big source of inspiration for me. I like walking there especially during the morning.
Editing
I use Photoshop for post-processing. The main things I change are contrast and colors.
In my camera bag
I don't take much equipment with me. I like to travel light. Often I just take my camera with my beloved 18-200 lens.
Feedback
If you want to capture something like this: go out in the forest early. :)
