so amazing view for this dam view

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this picture in Aldeadávila, a small town located in the Natural Park of Los Arribes del Duero, Salamanca, Spain.
Time
It was a race against the clock, the sun went quickly and I thought I did not have time to get there, but in the end I was able to take the photograph and I had a few minutes to admire the beauty of the place.
Lighting
There was a beautiful light, although a little weak because it was hiding behind the mountains.
Equipment
This was shot on a Fujifilm X T-20 with xf 18-55mm lens.
Inspiration
Many people had spoken to me about this place, so I had to go to see it with my own eyes. It is not common to be able to observe dams from that height.
Editing
I edited a bit the contrast and hue of the color
In my camera bag
I do not usually carry many things in my backpack, I usually carry my X T-20 with the 18-55mm and the samyang 12mm f2 for landscape. I also usually carry a Manfrotto tripod and a ND 10 filter.
Feedback
Enjoy the moment, be patient and photograph from different perspectives until you find the shot that you like the most.
