Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in the Lake District in the UK on a family walk around Haweswater reservoir. It's a man made reservoir that actually provides water for much of North England but when the water is low, the foundations of an old village that was flooded to create it can be seen. There are some other shots in my profile from the same day which show the reservoir too.
Time
As this was a family walk, it didn't require an early start. It was mid afternoon in August on a strange UK weather day - it would rain hard for 15 minutes and then be clear for 15, before repeating. It meant there were moody clouds around and yet clear spells of sun for walking and picture taking. The title 'Shelter from the Storm' was a reflection on the fact that we were jumping from various shelter points and waiting for the rain to pass.
Lighting
The lighting took care of itself in this one. I wanted to capture the clouds and the way the sun was lighting part of the hills around so just had to wait for the light to hit. I set the shot up during a period of rain and then waited for the light to come back through. Some basic Lightroom work just brought a little more contrast to the clouds.
Equipment
I use a Canon 7D with a few different lenses. As this isn't full frame I use the EFS 10-22mm for landscape shots which is fabulous. This particular shot was also on a tripod as I had set the camera up before time so that I could be ready for the right light.
Inspiration
It was a spur of the moment shot - I took many on this particular walk but coming across this small building and seeing the clouds and light behind made it an obvious candidate. I wasn't sure how it would turn out and as I don't own an graduated ND filters the sky is over exposed, but the result is good enough for me. It's no where near technically perfect, but it remains one of my favourite shots.
Editing
I used Lightroom for the post processing. There was no image editing required, but I have put some contrast into the clouds and tried to remove some of the over exposed spots in the sky.
In my camera bag
Usually lunch and all of the kids stuff :) From a camera perspective though, I have the 7D on my shoulder, the EFS 10-22mm attached and then the Canon 50mm f1.4 and Canon 100mm f2.8L macro in the bag. Small lenses which are easy to carry around but get the job done nicely. In addition, I tend to have a remote trigger and a few circular ND and polarising filters. On occasion I am fortunate to be able to borrow a 70-200mm f2.8L if I plan on shooting wildlife, but tend to leave it behind if I'm walking longer distances.
Feedback
As a keen amateur, I just take my camera everywhere. If I don't have it, I cant shoot, I can't learn, I can't improve. I'd prefer to fire off 500 shots and keep 0 than regret having the chance to shoot at all. I'll shoot anything from birds, landscapes, cityscapes to macros so there's always something to try out.
