Behind The Lens

Location

This photo was taken at the Faroe Islands in April, 2017.This place has not been turned into a tourist trap like Iceland and so you won't see many people other then the locals and maybe a few other photographers.

Time

We were driving around the evening/early sunset and we stopped to admire and capture the amazing light coming from the clouds which were casting shadows on the land below.

Lighting

The varied weather conditions at the Faroe Islands provided for some dramatic skies especially at sunrise and, in this case, early sunset.The breaks in the clouds gave us amazing results.You can not help but stop every few minutes because the light would suddenly poke through the clouds and give you breath taking vistas.

Equipment

I was shooting with the Nikon D750 with the Nikon 18-35mm (no tripod).

Inspiration

I just loved how the light created some sun at certain parts of this scene along with the winding road.

Editing

I usually use Photoshop and just added a bit of contrast and sharpening.

In my camera bag

For trips such as this one I had my nikon D750 and D810 along with a good wide angle which (for weight purposes) I use my Nikon 18-35mm.I also have the Sigma 24-105 ART as a carry-around lens.

Feedback

Well if you love landscape photography then I highly recommend visiting the Faroe Islands.Rent a car and just drive around and enjoy the varied scenes.You'll also find that rainbows are quite plentiful which adds more charm to the Faroe landscapes.
