Have you ever tried to get the perfect photo of a sunrise or sunset in the middle of nowhere? I have. It's what taught me patience. There's nothing like waiting on mother nature. She's the boss.
Sometimes I like to take photos when I go on long hikes outside the city. The city I live in is very congested and hiking helps me decompress. The photos I take are placed around the house. They remind me that peace of mind is only a few miles away. The photos usually take me the mindset I had when I took the picture.
The most recent hike I took was about seventeen miles outside of town. I took off around 4:00 AM set up my equipment and have a little coffee before sunrise. I got to my spot and setup.
There wasn't a single person for miles. Just how I like it. I was in complete silence. Just me, the camera and nature. I wait about an hour and a half before catching the sunrise.
