A question that I often thought about when I first started out was: Why do other landscape photographers always have these amazing sunsets with a burning sky, the clouds are going crazy and there is a huge thunder storm coming from the left with stunning flashes everywhere?
Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating right now, but that’s how I often feel while looking at all these amazing images on 500px.
But after talking to so many photographers, the answer seems pretty simple: Other photographers aren’t any luckier than you or me, they just manage to be at the right spot at the right time. They are even a few hours earlier in order to compose the best possible shot, because you won’t have the time to focus on this amazing sunset while running around to find the perfect position. And these photographers come back—sometimes every day for weeks—until they got these breathtaking clouds they were waiting for.
