    Great tips and images Dan! #4 and #5 are key especially key for me. As you mention, the tripod forces you to slow down and apply more thought to your composition, and weather can create some of the most dramatic scenes of all.

    Great post! The last one is perfect- ITS NOT ABOUT THE GEAR! I had a mentor put it another way, “the best piece of camera gear you will ever own is the 6 inches behind the camera.”

    Tony, that’s a great quote! I’ll have to remember that one. Thanks for reading! -Cheers, Dan

    Dan,

    Such a great and honest post. I really liked what you talked about competitors. Thats a nice approach to select the items that have to be included in the photograph. Also I liked the story telling part. You are also right its not about the gear but it is very hard to believe.

    I have Sony RX 100 and as I get more interested in photography, I get this urge to buy a SLR. So, even though gear is not important, everyone thinks it is the most important part.

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
