How to find the best way to photograph any landscape, at any time of year

Every continent, country, and region in the world has magnificent landscapes to photograph, and every season, climate, and time of day has its own unique quality. This practical book describes how best to look at a scene and work with the elements within it to produce images that really encapsulate those elements and describe in visual terms the expanse, depth, and beauty of a place. It explains how a digital camera produces a good landscape photograph, and advises on themes, composition, selection, lighting, and the use of software in the digital darkroom. The book is illustrated with stunning photographs that show how the elements within a landscape, the changing seasons, and the light combine to give the scene its feel and emotive quality.
