Landscape photography offers so many fantastic opportunities, and not just photographic. We live on an amazing planet and getting out into the environment can be relaxing and very enjoyable, and capturing great landscape photographs is obviously very rewarding. There are so many nuances in every location depending on the time of day and therefore the amount and quality of light available to you. Landscape photographs can be light and vibrant or they can be dark and moody as the two images below show.

Spend time familiarizing yourself with your location and if it is new to you take time to scout around searching for interesting landforms and perspectives. Look for leading lines that will draw and wind your eye into and through the picture as these two landscape photographs show.

The ocean has so many moods, moods that can change in the blink of an eye from calm, languid and serene, to frighteningly angry, boisterous and deadly. All of these moods create wonderful opportunities for a landscape photographer. As with all landscape photographs that include water you can create a range of “feels” by using a tripod and altering your shutter speed. Fast shutter speeds will freeze the movement while slow shutter speeds allow the water to move across the plane painting soft mystical lines.
