Appropriate Good Friday posting!

Luminous Landscape: Improve Your Photography by Staying Longer.
Might be behind the paywall. My quick take: plunk your arse down and wait. Even if you think you’ve gotten the shot. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from watching sunsets in Santa Fe ... when you think it can’t get any better, IT DOES. Right after you put your equipment away. EVERY TIME. So be patient. And don’t get cold while waiting. Wear proper clothing. “There is no bad weather, just bad outerwear.”
