Behind The Lens

Location
The shot made from hot air balloon flying over Bagan Archaeological Area in Myanmar (Burma)
Time
It was misty sunrise in Bagan(Pagan).
Lighting
Sun was very low and the light was soften by fog.
Equipment
Nikon D800 and 80-200mm F2.8 lens.
Inspiration
Flying over Bagan's pagodas and stupas is so beautiful experience so it is very hard to avoid making pictures. We got very lucky. After night storm remained pretty dense fog on the valley and sunrise very nicely lighted it. The flock of the birds has just completed the picture...
Editing
Just basic post-processing and cropping.
In my camera bag
I have D800 body with "tele" 80-200, normal 35-70 and fishye 16mm lens.
Feedback
This type of travel shots you can not prepare. There was no chance on the balloon to change lenses, so I mounted 80-200 lens and just enjoyed the flight :)
