Behind The Lens

Location

This was taken while on an extremely busy Alberta highway. However, there was a stoppage of traffic for a few minutes and I was able to grab a half dozen frames.

Time

This was in the early afternoon as a storm moved across the area.

Lighting

It was rather dark and here was this secondary cloud hovering inside the weather system … sort of like a spaceship.

Equipment

This was shot with a Nikon 7500 with an 18-300mm lens.

Inspiration

The shape and location of the cloud within a cloud really stood out and luckily I was able to capture it.

Editing

A bit of adjustment was made in RAW, mostly with a boost in contrast.

In my camera bag

When out and about making short trips, I usually only have one body and one lens, that being a Nikon 7500 and an 18-300 zoom lens. And when traveling, I no longer take a bunch of equipment. Two bodies, two or three lenses (one being an extreme 10-20 wide angle zoom.

Feedback

Basically, if you don't have a camera with you at all times, you'll only be able to talk about "the one that got away".
