'Tis the Season

Landscape photographers probably pay more attention to weather than just about any group other than meteorologists and farmers. The act of capturing compelling images out of doors is dependent upon light, and the quality of light is dependent upon weather (and, of course, the time of day).

This fall has been particularly blue and bright. Blue and bright are good for beachcombers and butterflies, but for landscape photographers looking for dramatic light that draws interesting lines over the landscape, broken light filtered through moving clouds is far better. 

With the storms coming through this week, we photogs are finally getting some of that special light we've been waiting on for the past few months. It's been a long dry spell, but I'm excited to get out and take advantage of what should end up being the most productive time of year for landscape photographers in Northern California.
