Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Val d'Orcia, it is a region of Tuscany, central Italy.
Time
The photo was taken a few minutes before sunrise.
Lighting
I reached the location half an hour before sunrise, to have a nice, soft light that could better show the shape of the hills. During Sunrise or Sunset the light changes rapidly so I took several shots in different light conditions.
Equipment
I used a Nikon D800, a Sigma 24 - 105 Art and a Manfrotto 190XProB Tripod.
Inspiration
I found this location years ago, and I took several shots during the years but I was never happy about the light so I decided to try the sunrise light. After a two hours drive I reached the location and... I was lucky, nice light, beautiful clouds and interesting atmosphere.
Editing
The post-processing was really light just some color correction and contrast.
In my camera bag
I usually carry my camera (...of course) the Sigma 24 - 105 Art, a Samyang 14 and a 35mm. I also carry some filters (ND and a polarizer) plus a remote shutter release.
Feedback
Find a good location and return there in different periods of the year and at different times if you can. Be at the right place a few minutes before sunrise or sunset (a couple of photographers arrived 20 minutes after sunrise and the beautiful light was already gone...). If you don't like the result try again!
