Landscape photography is an exercise in observation. Capturing the beauty of nature is a photographic journey that can be completed in minutes or can take a lifetime. However, as with many forms of photography, all landscapes are reliant on fleeting moments. A glimpse of sun through the clouds, or a seconds long reflection can be all that is needed to create a beautiful image. Finding these moments and being correctly prepared when they occur is the backbone of great landscape photography.
