I love that photography is light. It is exhilarating to engage a scene and watch as the light evolves throughout the day. To be able capture the exhilarating first breath of light to the days dramatic end is a very sensory experience. For me, each photograph is a journey in perception, an exploration in seeing the world that surrounds us. When photographing, I tune in to the natural rhythms and pulse of the subject at hand and try to communicate that sense back to the person seeing a final image. I also enjoy the fact that when shooting scenics or landscapes you have little or no control over weather, light or geography.
So to get that amazing shot a photographer must study the subject/landscape and place himself in the most unique position as to arrange all the variables in what will become an interesting composition. And sometimes you get lucky. There are those serendipitous moments when all the elements of a great image fall into place.
