Behind The Lens

Location
One of the best spot in Bavaria, the Neuschwainsten Castle near Fussen seen from the Marienbrücke; a jewel of the european architecture in a fantastic landscape easy to find and to reach due to a paved path. Absolutely to see once in a lifetime!
Time
This was in the late afternoon, near the sunset: a perfect cloud situation in the sky, the first autumn colours painted the trees of the forest under the castle and a great golden reflection in the waters of the lakes around the city.
Lighting
I didn't need artificial lights, I shot this by free hand: the bridge in not very settled and in the focal hours it's full of tourists so a tripod is not always a good idea...
Equipment
Canon eos 6d , Tamron 15-30 @ 17mm , f/9 , 1/250 sec. , iso 640 , no tripod
Inspiration
This is a place that doesn't need presentations and when I pass close to it a stop is sure.
Editing
Cropped and straighten out, this pic only received a leveling of bright and shadows, a little lift at the temperature and a bit of saturation for let the weat colors show up!
In my camera bag
With my Canon eos 6d there always are the 15-30, the 24-70 and the 70-200, all Tamron and all f/2.8; I use Rollei c5ii tripod and RayMaster camera filters.
Feedback
Keep calm for the crowd of people you could find on the path and on the bridge; if you like more isolated places there are a lot of other views of this castle, but this is the standard one!
