Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in the forest near Leuvenum in Holland.
Time
It was early in the afternoon.
Lighting
The whole day it was quite cloudy during my hike through the forest, until suddenly the sun broke through. It had been raining in the morning so when the sunlight was finding its way through the dense tree formations, it was filtered by the humid air.
Equipment
That day I was trying out, for the first time, my new Canon EOS RP camera, with a 24-105 mm. lens.
Inspiration
Seeing this beautiful sunlight breaking through the trees.
Editing
Non
In my camera bag
Two cameras with spare batteries.
Feedback
Don't let cloudy weather stop you to go out in nature.
