Location
This photo was taken in Prunelli di Fiumorbo, Corsica. Nice village in the mountains, and in December, there is some snow on the surrounding moutains, and most often lot of clouds. Makes for some nice moody photo.

Time
Noon, in December. Supposedly hard light, but not that day. It was, as much as I can recall from the serie of photos taken that day in the corsican "winter", a greyish and cloudy day. Definitely not at first glance the best day for landscape photography. But being bored and wanting to shoot something, the weather wasn't a deciding factor. That day I shot mostly at the long end of a tokina 80-400 lens.

Lighting
What lightning? The light sucked that day... but it turned out to give a few not too bad photos of those mountains.

Equipment
Nikon D3, Tokina 80-400, hand held. Nothing really worth noting here.

Inspiration
Apart from being bored and wanting to shoot something?

Editing
Black and white, levels, contrast...
