Everybody needs some type of escapism that has a positive impact on their lives and I chose landscape photography!

The Summer Blues (blue skies)

The Summer Blues (blue skies)

I’m not the only one that thinks this, summer is the most challenging time of year to shoot. I often find a drought of images through the middle part of the year. July through September specifically are the biggest issues, even though this is the time of year many are getting outside on vacation.
