No Photoshop, no HDR, no effects.
“It was pretty simple. I took it with my Canon 5D and Canon EF70-200 2.8 IS lenses. I measured the light with a Sekonik light meter, and set the camera at ISO 320, f/5.6 and 1/320. I imported it through RAW and that was it.
It was last week, on September 11. I was in a place called Los Sotos de la Albolafia, a natural reserve where birds live in Córdoba. One of those evenings when you can smell the storm coming in the air. There was a pleasant breeze. It felt like the end of the summer.
There was a giant anvil cloud. Flocks of birds were coming back to sleep. I knew Venus would be near Jupiter, and after a while it appeared behind a cloud. It was fast, because in a few seconds all was gone.
I was in the right place at the right time with the gear ready… so it had to be good.”
