Shooting landscapes forces you to get outside and find the beauty that surrounds you. Sometimes this means discovering places that were right in front of your eyes that you may have never noticed before. Other times this means exploring new places and getting out on a hike or nature walk. In any case, even if I don’t come back with images that excite me, I am always better for having gotten out in the fresh air. It also pushes me to explore new places that I might not have discovered otherwise.
