Behind The Lens

Location
I took this shot along the beachfront walkway. I went out reasonably early to get some shots for my portfolio. The lead-lines drew me into this shot.
Time
I shot this early "ish" in the morning: around 8.45. The weather was windy, and the seas big. I once lived on the other side of the road and looked at this view regularly. I miss it, so I wanted some good shots. I thought the bad weather would result in boring shots, but the eerie light helped make the image more evocative.
Lighting
The light was excellent, but the RAW files looked too flat. A small amount of post-processing brought back the atmosphere and interesting light that I had originally observed...
Equipment
I shot this with my Nikon D700 with a 14-24mm f2.8 lens. Standing under the tree helped prevent unwanted flare.
Inspiration
I was looking for shots and I knew I was leaving the next day so I sought out some interest angles to get the look I was after.
Editing
Post-processing involved the usual RAW conversion plus some exposure adjustments and colour filters.
In my camera bag
I always carry my D700 and at least one lens.
Feedback
Don't be discouraged by bad weather, it often provides moodiness to your shots.
