Landscape Photography in 21 Minutes


Landscape photographers are known for scouting a location hours, days, even weeks ahead of time and simply waiting for the best light and conditions to come along.


But every once in awhile, it goes like this:


07:10am Cat wakes you up


07:10:30am Look out window and see the sky exploding


07:11am Search frantically for shoes


07:12:30am Head out the door with camera gear still wearing pajama bottoms and crocs


07:14am Notice new staircase is complete down to a nice looking beach (not intended destination) and pull over


07:15am Arrive at beach and set camera up


07:16am Take first photo


07:21am Take this photo


07:31am Coffee and breakfast back home
