As I grow as a photographer, I enjoy the process of exploring a setting and creating an original composition. However, when I see the photos of others, and I can’t help but be influenced by this in my own composition. At other times I unknowingly fall into a great composition and later discover that the composition has been done by others already. For this next location, I didn’t know ahead of time, but I immediately recognized this as the location of other well-known photographers and their photographs. What a great location!
Most of the photos below were taken before the sun rose. The landscape reflected the pre-dawn light. The last photo was taken as the sun came over the horizon and added a warm glow to the sunward facing ridges.
