Landscape photography can be an almost meditative experience, and as this great video shows, even if the images don't happen, it's still a worthwhile undertaking.
I originally got into landscape photography simply because I loved hiking, and one day, I decided to bring a camera along, which is why this really resonated with me. Coming to you from Thomas Heaton, this vlog follows him as he hikes the summit of Great Gable at sunset. While it's great to see his workflow and have him talk us through the composition and shooting of a few images, his monologue at the end is really worth listening to. Shooting landscapes means you're at the mercy and fortune of the elements, never mind all the potential mishaps you may run into with your camera, lenses, or as Heaton mentions, hiking up the wrong mountain. Nonetheless, it's important to remember the pure joy that is being alone in nature and to never allow photographic endeavors possibly not going as intended to ruin that.
And as always, if you'd like to dive into the art of landscape photography a bit more, be sure to check out "Photographing The World: Landscape Photography and Post-Processing with Elia Locardi."
