Stop, drop and roll. This is what is taught to kids about fire safety. I’ve incorporated that idea into my landscape photography, with one change. Stop, drop and turn around.

Stop, and look at your surroundings. Don’t just go to a spot that you know, take in what you see along the way.

Drop, I shoot my landscape images always on a tripod. I would extend the legs of my tripod to my eye level, now I never extend the legs of my tripod and shoot from a very low angle. (Two thing that help. Articulating screen on my camera and a REI camping stood.)

Turn around, sometime your best images are behind you and I’m not talking about you past.
