Default Legs do count

I knew this place, right outside of a nearby village, that had to be shot.
Great thing was I had my new Tokina 12-24 lens to capture it all.
The unfortunate thing about it though, was I'd misplaced my ordinary tripod, so I had to use my very old, very light and very plastic tripod, which has little to no stability in it whatsoever.
What ended up happening was me basically lying on top of the camera/tripod just to keep it sturdy against the wind !

I know I must come back to this place with an actual tripod.

Hope you enjoy !

Thanks, spy !
I just got myself a graduated neutral density filter, which helped A LOT with the sun going down.
As I said though, the tripod I was using made it almost impossible to set anything up because it's built for compact cameras, HAHA

It's amazing what a body thrown over top to hold it down can do. It is a great shot!
