When you notice the sun beginning to set and it's beer o'clock make sure you have your camera handy.
Some scenery is spell binding, breath taking and will cause you to stop in your tracks and just appreciate nature at its best.
I once heard of a man who had been stung by several box jelly fish, (I think his name was Ian McCormack, maybe google that name and see what you come up with) he apparently died for an hour or two and travelled to heaven. He compares heaven to many of the sights he had seen and experienced in New Zealand!!!
Wow I think I need to get to heaven!! (Or New Zealand)
On our recent trip back to New Zealand, we were driving towards the Otira Pass late in the afternoon, the sun began to get low in the sky, we stopped on the side of the road for a beer and simply to enjoy the most wonderful display of creations creativity.
... a camera was quickly taken out of the car.
I will always use shadows slider to reveal what is in the darker parts of a photograph. Even on your phone make sure you edit by using the shadows slider and then the exposure slider. It will make your image a whole lot easier for others to view and is probably a truer representation of what you saw yourself. The camera is not able to pick up a vast range in contrast. It will generally focus on just the light parts of an image or just the dark parts.
I hope this helps when you are out photographing.
