Landscape photography largely boils down to light, skies and location. If you have a great location then all you need then is to be there when the light is good and the skies are dramatic and you have the ingredients for an excellent shot.
I've recently been taking a number of images at the same location to see how many different versions of the same scene I can get. The location itself is unremarkable - just a standard beach near my home. The variables are the conditions on the day - light and sky plus whatever camera settings I choose. Photo's taken in the morning tend to have clearer skies due to the prevailing winds on the west coast and evening skies often have dramatic clouds and nice sunsets. I'll be added to this gallery of images over time.
