Behind The Lens

Location
This castle is called Burg Eltz, and is located close to Cochem, Germany. It is one of the most popular castles in Germany.
Time
I took this shot early in the morning, so that I do not have tourists in my frame.
Lighting
Golden hour is my favourite time, because the light is soft and the sky is more colorful.
Equipment
I used my Nikon D750 and the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8.
Inspiration
Castles are always a fascinating subject for me, so I always wanted to visit this castle and take some photos.
Editing
Post processing was done in Lightroom and Photoshop.
In my camera bag
I always have my D750, my Tamron 15-30 as well as a Nikon 80-200. I always carry also my square filters (ND and Grad).
Feedback
My advice would be to go as early or late as possible, in order to avoid the big crowds.
