Landscape Photography Tip: Arrive Early / Stay Late

Driftwood and Sandbars is a landscape photograph that was captured on the shore of the Delaware River at low tide one evening. The image was created to showcase the ripples of the sandbars of the river bed with a piece of washed up driftwood resting on it. The standing water between the ripples of sandbars captures the pinks and blues of the sky as the sun sets in the south. Colors of the image are blues, pinks, browns, and yellowish orange. Title: Driftwood and Sandbars Photographer: Melissa Fague Genre: Landscape PhotographyArrive 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 shoots allows you time to view the scene in lighting that others would dismiss, giving you the opportunity to photograph the “unseen” world. This is one of the compositional elements that gives landscape photography it WOW factor.
