Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in Germany, where me and my husband currently live. To be more precise, it was taken in a beautiful, small town in Bayern which is called Ramsau.
Time
The picture was taken around 2-3 pm. While we were coming back from the mountain trail, a heavy fall of rain started. We decided to hide under the roof of a local tavern. Hoping that the rain stopped, we decided to continue our trip back home. There was a slight drizzle and the sunshine appeared. Therefore, I turned around once again in order to check the height we managed to reach. At that moment I was struck by this beautiful, vivid image which can be seen in the picture. I took only two pictures since the rain started again so we needed to rush home. I was dealing with a regret feeling for a while that due to the circumstances, me and my husband were not able to appreciate the view for a little bit longer. However, I am sure we will come back there soon.
Lighting
One time I stumbled upon the information that the most beautiful pictures are taken right after a rain, with the sun coming out from behind the clouds. Moreover, Elena Shumilova taught me that 2 pm is a perfect hour when it comes to lighting. Therefore, while taking this picture I was provided with everything I needed in order to obtain a perfect lighting for my photograph.
Equipment
I use the camera Canon EOS 5D Mark II which is going to stay with me for a long time for sure and I am still learning how to use it more effectively. My favourite lens for the landscapes is lens 24-105 Canon, supposedly not the best one in basic terms but personally, for me this lens is extremely reliable and sharp as a razor. Also, I use a polarising filter made by B+W company.
Inspiration
I love magical, fairy tale landscapes which already exist and I do not need to create them in Photoshop. This exact place is my magical scenery, where I feel that the world is beautiful and l am blessed with an opportunity to experience it.
Editing
I am rather reluctant to do this; usually I try to avoid Photoshop. However, sometimes small corrections are necessary. In this picture, I used a warming filter, and as my master of lighting Elena Shumilova advised me, I darkened some of the dark elements with a brush and some of them I brightened. The correction was slight but added a lot of value to the picture.
In my camera bag
In my bag I always have 2 spare batteries, a cleaning kit for the lens and a second lens which is 85 mm.
Feedback
To be honest, I do not really know what kind of advice I could give to others since I am still learning. I just follow the feeling in my heart, my instinct and the image in my head – I do not know how to express it… I think that sometimes it is enough to just to stop for a while in a special for us place, somewhere where we feel good, take a look around and just take a picture of something that we would like to show to others, share the emotions embedded in the picture and encourage them to visit that place.
