Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Tervueren Park nearby Brussels, Belgium. I am an amateur photographer and I am always looking for something that gives me an inspiration and makes me smile.
Time
It was early Autumn evening and I was walking with my dog in this Tervueren Park which is one of our favorite places to go out and about. The forest with it's tall linden trees is a wonderful and magical place. This particular evening the sun set was so beautiful and clouds were colored like I had never seen before. The air was cool and there was nobody else except us in this part of the forest. It was perhaps around 4 pm and we were already heading towards our car when I just stopped on my tracks looking amazed into the skies seeing all this.
Lighting
I always prefer natural light and natural color's when taking photos. The evening light was fading fairly fast. Along the path we were walking it seemed much darker and the contrast between the dark and light was very intriguing. The last sun rays were penetrating beautifully through the tree branches and giving this magical, unspoiled feeling that I love in nature so much.
Equipment
This time I had with me only my iPhone. I just crossed my fingers that there would be enough light to take a decent photo. The end result made me very happy.
Inspiration
I feel happier and more relaxed when I am surrounded by woods. I love beautiful things and especially when there is something enhanced by natural light. This evening the light was something special, changing quickly to different hues with the setting sun. It was a true spectacle. The lace-like branches made an extra effect that simply made me hold my breath. It was a happy moment.
Editing
Since I had taken this photo with my iPhone the colors did not come through as I had seen them on that evening. I wanted to make it resample the actual reality as much as possible so I sharpened the photo a bit, enhanced shadows and highlight slightly and added more vibrancy and voilà, the photo looked the same as the sky had been on that moment when I pushed the button.
In my camera bag
When I go just for a walk with my dog I always take my iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S4 with me. They are for "emergencies", in case I find something beautiful or interesting and want to have a photo of it. But if I really want to go for a proper photo hunting walk, I take with me my Nikon D3200 with it's 18-55 and 55-200 VR lenses. I also carry sometimes my tri-pod and a polarization lens. Sometimes I add also a little pocket Nikon just for better macro possibilities. Photography has become little by little more serious hobby for me and along then way I have added new accessories to my arsenal. There is so much to learn!
Feedback
For me taking a photo is quite often just like a "carpe diem", catching a moment when it comes unexpectedly in front of me. I do very seldom any planned photo shooting missions but like to be awaken by sudden beauty and inspired by natural events like a sunset. I am actually addicted to sunsets and find them most pleasing to watch at. A change of light, different cloud formations, shadows and angles of light can cause wonderful results. All is needed to keep the eyes open, look around, up or behind oneself. When shooting sunset photos everything can change if you turn around 180 degrees. The colors and details are different then. I often take photos to opposite directions just to catch various moods and color tones of sunsets.
