Behind The Lens

Taken on a road trip from the top of a hill. The image is part of Ohana farms in Coromandal New Zealand.
Taken at 1.35 in the afternoon. We weren't having much luck with the weather as it was raining on and off most of the day. We we got to the top of the hill,there was a break in the weather and looking back to wards Coromandal Town, there was r asin in the distance over the hills and sun over the bay.
The lighting was dull due to the weather condition so brought out the colours in lightroom and adjusted the brightness to bring out the contrast in the clouds and hills.
I used a canon 750d with my 10_18 f4.5-5.6 is STM lens hand held. This is a panorama of 3 shots stiched in lightroom. Settings of raw images 18mm 1/60sec f11 iso100
The view from the top of the hill, the different colours from the green of the grass through to the differing blues in the distance of the forrested hills and farming land with the rain clouds and sun trying to break through.
Yes there was post processing. I am only new to lightroom so still finding my way around. So I have used contrast, reduced the shadows and added some clarity and reduced the vibrancy slightly.
In my camera bag
I have the folliwing lenses - 55-250, 18-55 and the 10-18. I have recently acquired a10stop ND filter. I have a tripod and a 430Ex 111 speedlight and a release cable.
Don't be afraid to take images in adverse weather. I didn't get a sunset or sunrise over the 3 days. Clouds can add a bit of drama to a landscape. If you like what you see try it.
