Behind The Lens

Location
I took this in Bangprakong province in Thailand. not too far from my place I took quite a time by my own moped .Not many people know that this place is existed and probably one of few temple or one temple that built in sea that may why it was overlook but that's a reason why it's here because temple usually built in isolated place.
Time
I remembered that I took this around 6 o'clock but I getting there around 5 o'clock and wait until the time was right. I traveled with my moped around noon and get there around 5 o'clock it's hard to get there because my moped didn't run good on off road and harsh environment (there are a lot of mud that cause by high tide that wash mud up on street also rain) so I traveled earlier so I can get it there before sunset. and yet I have to check the high tide low tide calendar or else you get nothing.
Lighting
In Thailand monsoon season can be either clear sky or very cloudy but I was lucky that there is a rain in morning so sky was clear in evening so I can get the ideal not so harsh light from sunset that shine on golden part of temple.
Equipment
This was shot by Nikon D5200 with Nikkor 10-24 F/3.5-4.5G ED with manfrotto 290 tripod and B+W Pol E CPL filter.
Inspiration
This city Bang Prakong is not a very much known place for traveling because normally people will think it's just a industrial city with a lot of commercial dock but there are many historical place that hiding and isolated from populated area and no one really know about it so that's why I looking around and asking villager for an interesting place in this city.
Editing
This was stacked by 6 photos with 1 second shutter speed and F8 each and then adjust white balance warmer ,add some contrast and sharpen a bit.
In my camera bag
I can't leave my home with my ultra wide angle lenses. They all are my favorite. I always have my Nikkor 10.5 F/2.8 fisheye and Nikkor 10-24mm F/3.5-4.5 with me. although those are beaten up but still working great. My 80% photos are from wide angle lens they're really useful to me.
Feedback
For me weather and lighting is everything no matter what camera or lens you use if lighting and weather is not ideal it's may cause trouble for your landscape. also for seascape high tide and low tide also very very important. sea level , lighting and weather must in ideal condition to bring out gorgeous shot in any seascape and landscape!
