Arrive Early and Stay Late

Mother nature has a way of presenting her beauty when she feels like it. When shooting your nature and landscape photographs, arrive on the scene early and leave the scene late. Getting to the location of your landscape and nature shoot early allows you time to find the best possible location, position, and set up time. Both arriving and leaving the scene of the nature and landscape photo shoot allows you time to view the scene in lighting that others would dismiss, giving you the opportunity to photograph the “unseen” world.
