Incredible shot

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at the Dead Sea, Israel
Time
The photo was taken a few hours before the sunset.
Lighting
I wanted the sun to be at somewhat in a low position in order to bring out textures of the ground, but on the other hand I wanted the sun to be high enough in order to get a well lit scene.
Equipment
To take this photo I have used DJI Phantom 4 Advanced drone.
Inspiration
In this photograph I was able to compose and capture a shape which resembles a ghost and it reflects Dead Sea's sad situation of being constantly dehydrated. The circles in this photo are sinkholes.
Editing
This photo was edited in Lightroom. The purpose of the edit was to only do some minor color, WB, and sharpness corrections.
In my camera bag
In my bag I usually have my Nikon D850 camera and a few lenses for landscape photography.
Feedback
Try to imagine the photo before you actually take it.
