Landscape photography is about slowing down and taking time to do it properly. The best light can be scarce and disappear at a moment’s notice, so a photographer needs to be there early, scout the location, find the best angles, prepare the gear and then make many shots, never leaving until the very last moment. As I take the pictures, I enjoy stillness and solitude, while reflecting on how admirable the landscape is, why it matters to me, why does it keep me up until late (or wakes me up early) and why being there fulfills my biggest dreams. I breathe on the fresh air, notice the particular smells, look towards the horizon and the sky, take notice of curves and reflections, marvel at the palette of natural colors and the diversity of elements that compose our world. When I get back home and look at the photos in the computer, I make my effort to only keep my very best, but examine every picture to learn from my own mistakes and come better prepared the next time.
