    For my kind of photography,prior planning is #1, and lighting is #2 on the list.
    It is very difficult for me to walk around and just try to find something interesting. I like to visit a site several times, and with each visit, know in advance how I will approach the subject matter…Also, try to not take every sunset you see..pretty…but, pretty played out too…Look in the opposite direction for the effects of the golden light…~rick
