Behind The Lens

Location
I never saw something like that in my life before. Me and my wife were visiting Chicago at that time and we noticed interesting low clouds between buildings, they were going very fast. Then we got lift to one tower and even more interesting view appeared - clouds coming from the lake and disappears right after they reach land.
Time
It was just afternoon, not a specific time.
Lighting
From the tower where this photo was taken view to both sides was similar, just other side was right against sun. I just wanted to avoid sun flares in the photo, so pointer camera to this side.
Equipment
I was using Canon 5D Mark II with Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II lens.
Inspiration
I love nature, and usually I don't create many photos in the cities. This time nature was "in the city", so I could not resist to take this shot.
Editing
Not much - I just use Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom trying to create more realistic view.
In my camera bag
I usually care Manfrotto tripod - it's pretty heavy and sometimes not comfortable to carry it for a long hike, but it's worth it, especially if I decide to make a timelapse of the landscape. Other equipment fits in one bag - Canon 5D Mark II (I know, I need an upgrade very much), two lenses - Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8 II and Canon 70-200 f/4 IS USM. Various filters - ND, Circular polarizing. Sometimes, when I'm going to shoot some indoor event, I take Canon 580 EX II flash.
Feedback
Since most of my photography is landscape, patience by default is the main thing what you need - just wait for the perfect moment. However, for this particular shot, it was completely opposite - I noticed some unusual (at least for me, I don't know what locals would say) activity change our day plan to get higher as fast as possible to see what's happening. So in general, patience is a good friend, but if something unexpected is happening - be flexible and don't miss the chance.
