Incredible shot!

Behind The Lens

This shot was taken on a foggy Easter Monday several years ago on The Great Orme in Llandudno, Wales. My children were playing in 'Alice in Wonderland' themed play area, as they ran around, the sun peaked through the fog. Whilst standing and watching, both my children, and the beautiful Mother Nature's spectacular show, I could not resist and captured the beauty of sun rays coming through the trees and burning off the fog.
We had arrived in Llandudno, after travelling for 2 hrs from my home in the North West of England around 10am to make the most of the Bank Holiday. We caught the train up to the sumit of the Great Orme headland, marvelled looking down on top of the fog linguering around the bay, and slowly made our way back down the opposite side via walking to leisurely take in the scenery. So I would think, by the time this shot was taken, it would have early afternoon lunch time.
I was just in the right place at the perfect time with the sunrays bursting through the mist and trees, giving a magical but eerie image.
This was shot using my first Nikon camera, Nikon D3400, (I have since upgraded to my Nikon D7200). No other equipment was used.
Mother Nature providing her stunning show whilst my children were playing chase had me reaching for my camera to capture her beauty.
No, no post-processing required on this image. It is very much shot and shared as seen. No filter needed.
In my camera bag
I would normally carry several ranges of lenses along with my Nikon D7200. My go to lens is my 140mm, I also have an F1.8 50mm, F2 100mm, F1.4 15-80mm lens in my bag. Always carry my lens wet wipes and a dry lens cloth. Clean lens provide a clean shot.
Keeping a look out for different weathers, different times of day and different seasons and times of year provide different outlooks of the same scenery. Always worth going out to revisit the same area for a twist once the weather and seasons change. Even different times of day to capture the changing colours of Mother Nature.
