Behind The Lens

This photo was taken in Urk, one of the historic little fisherman's villages on the Dutch coast of the former estuarium of the river the IJssel called "The Zuijderzee" ( meaning the southern sea) which is now a freshwater lake after they build a dam in the very north of Holland to protect the land from flooding.
It was in the late afternoon with a serious threat of rainshowers passing by
I tried to balance between the sky and the shades so 2 stops less than actually needed as I know in Lightroom one can lift up the shades a bit and pull back the high lights
Nikon 800E with the 14-24 is a serious registrator of all the low and high that is needed- no flash, tripod or anything but some postprocessing in LR
I noticed the odd numbering of the 262 and that cloud in the very middle when passing by. As I had the camera ready to shoot I stopped and framed.
In a case like this I try to get the sky as well as the shades by using 2 stops less than actually needed. The sky is easy to get well detailed and the shades can be lifted in Lightroom. The huge amount of information of the 36 million 800E rawfile leaves the dark grey in perfect order.
In my camera bag
Nikon D800E/D750 with the 14-24 and 28-300. Lately often the 20 mm/1.8 as it is very light and small and the 85mm/1.4
Walking around harbours and fisherman's location has always been my weak spot as I am born in a harbourtown like that. The smell and the atmosphere is nostalgic to me. Just look around and especially look twice but just one step to the left or right and all kind of new angles appear.
