Behind The Lens

Location
This image was taken at the Old Silk Route, that connect India and China which was the major trading route .
Time
After travelling for the entire day we reached this place at Zuluk in East Sikkim just before the Sunset,
Lighting
This image has been illuminated by the tail light and the head light of a car.
Equipment
Nikon Df along with a Nikon 28mm f/2.8 mounted on a tripod.
Inspiration
The bends and the curve of the road .
Editing
yes the image has been stacked in PS and some minor cropping done
In my camera bag
I basically have a Nikon Df with a nifty fifty 50 f/1.4 and a 28 f/2.8
Feedback
Be ready spend some time nature will provide with the best shot.
