Instead of just concentrating on vast vista landscapes. Take some time to focus in on the smaller sections of the landscape. Small sections of the landscape can represent an area or a season beautifully. When you decide to go out then you should have a plan in your mind of the type of shots you want. Keep the plan flexible. This day I had decided to concentrate on the autumn leaves.
On this particular lovely autumn day I had gone for walk in a local park to take some autumnal photographs. The park was at Nostell priory in Yorkshire. There were plenty of fallen multi coloured leaves on the floor. There was a roughly made bench under the branches of a tree. The scene just looked lovely and so harmonious with the colours. The focus was on the colour of the leaves in the scene so I didn’t need to take in the whole tree. The bench made a nice focal point for the shot. Shots like this look right in flat light which just wouldn’t suit a big landscape.
Keep your eyes open for such shots. They might not the impact of vast landscapes but they are so lovely and remind you of lovely days out.
Get outdoors and see the beautiful world we live in.
