Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken on the place named Stokksnes, Iceland.
Time
It was summer night - right one hour between sunset and sunrise.
Lighting
As i said it was the time after sunset and before sunrise - but actually it never get dark that places in summer. So just wait till the sun goes down over the rocks and get ready for this mistery.
Equipment
I used Phase One 645df camera and Phase One IQ180 digital back, with Mamiya FishEye 24mm lens.
Inspiration
iceland is one of the most inspired place in the world itself. For example i never seen two similar photographs from Stokksnes.
Editing
I believe any landscape picture must be post-processed. I used Capture One software and Photoshop, ofcourse.
In my camera bag
In my bag i have one camera Phase One 645df with digital back iq180, three lenses 24mm, 45mm, 80mm for MF, tripod Gitzo with Manfrotto head. Thats all i need.
Feedback
Stokksnes is a very interesting place - some photographers come here to shoot the sand dunes, some for the waves, some for the rock's reflections - what is your choice?
