Behind The Lens

Location
I've taken this photo at Iceland's Reynisfjara black sand beach in the southern part of the country.
Time
It was about midday, on a dark and moody day in the beginning of September.
Lighting
Just the diffuse light given by the clouds with the long exposure effect of the ND1000-filter.
Equipment
I used a Fuji X-T2 with the Fujinon 35mm f/1.4 lens together with a Sirui tripod and an ND1000-filter in front of the lens.
Inspiration
The unique landscape of Iceland and especially the lonely rock on this black sand beach in contrast with the white water of the ocean and the background with Reynisdrangar - the rock formation from Vik.
Editing
I did some post-processing but just some color- and contrast-changes of the RAW-file. Also the white balance was changed due to the LEE Big Stopper which has unfortunately a colorcast.
In my camera bag
The X-T2, some primes and a NISI-holder together with filters of different brands. And sometimes a little DJI Spark.
Feedback
If you're not satisfied with sky for your photo (like I was), try a long exposure shot at daylight - often the mood of a landscape changes a lot through a big ND-filter, especially when there's also moving water in the frame.
