Always bring a camera
In landscape photography there is a lot of focus on gear. You have to bring a tripod, ND filters, grading filters, full format camera and so on.
My experience is simple. You have to bring a camera!
Many of my pictures is taken on the go, because landscape photography is about being at the right spot at the right time. This is not always easy to predict, so the best way to increase the possibility for that to happen, is to bring a camera whenever you are on the go. Driving, hiking, walking, biking........
This picture wast taken driving over a mountain in Norway near where I live. I had my camera in the backseat, as I allways do when driving, when I saw this snow landscape. I stopped the car, jumpet outside and took som pictures before the light dissapered. My only gear was a Pentax K3 with Pentax 50-135mm, handheld.
