I know, I´m not the first one photographing this location, but who could resist in that situation?

Behind The Lens

Location
I did take the photo on the Lofoten Islands northern Norway in February this year 2017 in Hamnoy, a little village on the west end of the islands.
Time
It was the late afternoon about 3.30 pm. The sun was fast vanishing.
Lighting
The sun comes in February only for about 5 hours over the horizon and only for a quarter from the south side and not high, so you have for the whole day a good lighting for taking photos.
Equipment
I did use a Sony alpha 7ii, a neutral density filter and of course a tripod and my 24-70 mm lens.
Inspiration
I knew this place from several other photos I have seen before and imagined to take this photo with this lighting. And we had so much luck to be there and to have that lighting!
Editing
I used Lightroom to develop the picture and the plug in "Intensify Pro".
In my camera bag
There is a 100 mm macro lens, a 24-70 zoom lens, my 14 mm manual lens, a 70-200 f4 Canon lens I use with an adapter with an incredable quality, one flash, a 60 cm folding reflector, my camera of course, a ND and a polarizer filter, a little torch, memory cards, batteries etc.
Feedback
This picture is planed with the App TPE, "The Photographers Ephemeris" and I knew where sun will be and when I have to be there.
