Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was made during my first trip to Iceland in April
Time
This is one of the few sunsets that the weather has given us throughout the trip. We waited almost 2 hours on this promontory that the sun would come down with a tremendous wind.
Lighting
I wanted to remember the colors that an Icelandic sunset gives, from the rocks that become an orange swirling to the ocean blue, to all the nuances that sky takes.
Equipment
This photo was taken with a 5D Mark III and a 16-35 F / 4 IS L. The exposure time is 10 minutes ( with 6 stop ND Nisi Filters ) at f / 11 iso 100. I have been entrusted to my beloved BENRO who has done well despite the mighty wind.
Inspiration
Let's say this promontory is very famous on this island.
Editing
Usually I do not like to twist the photos very much in using double exposure (I prefer using filters during the shutter phase). in post production the basic steps that I make are: white balance, curves and in the end a bit of sharpness.
In my camera bag
As a photographic backpack I entrusted a Stratosphere Backpack to a F-Stop Tilopa! Which has, besides the space for my photographic equipment, the space to put in other garments (in this case a sweatshirt and a vest). Inside, there are 5D Mark III, Canon 16-35 f / 4 IS L, Tamron 70-200 f / 2.8 VC USD and a range of Nisi filters.
Feedback
My first tip is very simple .. Have fun! And enjoy the time ... especially in a land like Iceland where every corner gives different emotions. Have patience, wait even under the weather like wind, snow and rain helps not to miss the perfect shot! DO NOT FORGIVE. Scheduling the shots is very important, knowing where to find yourself and what you will be facing will help you not get lost once in the place so document with the various apps including Maps. Mainly these are the tips I usually do to my friends.
