Weather and lighting have a huge impact on landscape and nature photos, and the same scene captured in varying conditions will look drastically different. The conditions considered by a photographer to be “good weather” are sometimes what most people would consider to be “bad weather”.
Fog, mist, and haze are perfect for capturing images that have a certain mood or feeling. When the conditions are right, ordinary subjects can be transformed into something much more interesting and beautiful.
Unfortunately, we can’t control the weather. But we can pay attention to the forecast and learn to anticipate opportunities so we’re ready when the time arrives.
