I come from a photo family of accomplished photographers. Being the youngest I was one of the first to embrace digital and the stunningly easy results you can obtain, if of course you know the tricks, especially landscape photography. I attended film school in New York back in the 70's so I've been at this a while.
As a photographer, I've seen a lot of incredible things in the natural world so my goal has been to share that view with others. Most people take landscape photos and are really disappointed.
Taking landscape pictures in broad daylight should be done in late June around mid-day when the sun is almost directly over head.
