Natural always has something interesting to offer ,whenever I am in the field. We can never predict what nature is going to present in front of us. In this article, I have presented a few photographs of sunrises and sunsets that nature offered me, while I was search of the golden light.Landscape photography is the art of depicting natural and inland scenery..
Marcel Proust, a French novelist said, ” The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes”. This is what makes a photographer different from tourists . A photographer often sees what others don’t. He observes what others ignore. He is the one who sees simple landscapes coming to life. How many of the tourists leave their beds early morning to witness the sunrise? How many of them wait hours at the beach to get that 5 minutes of sunset? Probably , no one except a photographer.
Whenever we think of landscape,the art of depicting natural inland scenery, the first thing that comes in our mind is sunrise or sunset (i.e. the golden hour). The color of the sky, the patterns and the play of light that could be seen in golden hours is very difficult to find at other times of the day. to be on time is not enough for a photographer. He has to place himself at the best possible to get that perfect light. But, the bitter truth is many times we climb up the hill and position ourselves at best possible position but end up with nothing but the real photographer is the one who never gives up, as said by famous legendary photographer Ansel Adams, “Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer and often the supreme disappointment “
