Wow! Wow! and Wow! again
spectacular shot!
the timing is perfect
The clouds look like a dragon and that poor tree, victim of Dragon's breath

Great job with this. I love the black/white/black layering, the way the tree flows with the clouds like they're pointing in the same direction, and the minimalism. Great work.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at the Beachy Head, very close to Eastbourne, UK.
Time
05:40 AM
Lighting
No additional lightning
Equipment
Nikon D600 + Nikkor 85mm 1.4G
Inspiration
Once I noticed the tree and how clouds are formed in the background I knew I will be post-processing it in rich black and white
Editing
Conversion to BW in Lightroom, some dodging in PS
In my camera bag
Normally in my camera bag will always be space for Nikon D600 body + 35/1.4 Sigma Art + Nikkor 85/1.4. For some specific tasks I would include my DIY tilt-shift lens made from medium format Mamiya-Sekora C 80/2.8 lens and manual CZ Jena 135/3.5 as well as Helios 44-3M 58/2 - both successfully converted to Nikon F mount with ability to focus to infinity, by the way.
Feedback
I was really lucky with the formation of the clouds. Without it it would not be that good. So guys, pay attention to details;)
