Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo on my way home, coming from my father's in Rouen. This famous windmill is situated near the "Forêt de Brotonne" in the Seine valley in Normandy.
Time
If I remember well it was in January this year and I was extremely lucky to drive by just as the sky was going pink before getting dark. I had to park quickly because I knew I would only have 2 or 3 minutes to take some pictues...
Lighting
I have several photos of this mill and very often I must say I've been lucky with the light. (there must be 2 other photos of this place on ViewBug) The light is important but the silhouette of the tree and the house next to the house helps make a good picture.
Equipment
I used a Canon 70D with the convenient EF-S 17-85 mm 1:4-5.6 IS USM (although I would like to have a sharper lens with less distortion)
Inspiration
Driving home, I wasn't expecting to take photos that evening but I know that you must always have your camera with you and I realised was well inspired to have it with me when I saw this beautiful sky...
Editing
I don't often do a lot of post-processing, just what I still do with my B/W "film photos" (I still have and use SLR cameras, process my B/W films and enlarge them myself.)
In my camera bag
I used to have a Canon 50D and I now have a 70D with the 17-85mm lens mentioned above but I wish I had a full frame camera. I also have a Canon 50mm macro lens. (My Sigma 70-200mm F1:2.8 can't get in the bag, it's too big !) ;)
Feedback
Take your photos in the morning or in the evening when the light is interesting and walk round your subject to try and find the best composition possible.
