#Albumtheme: How to photograph in harsh light?
#landscapephotography , #photography

We landscape photographer often get jaded...all we want to do is look for perfect light and avoid taking photographs during midday. But if we take some time to notice we will find that beauty surrounds us at all times of the day. Here is an attempt to provide some inspiration as to what an be captured during midday in broad daylight. 

Sometimes taking a photo at midday is as easy as pointing the camera in the right direction as seen in this short video: http://youtu.be/TzXvoYXBRBQ

Feel free to share you examples of the photographs taken during the day.

Yes, +Jay Patel  harsh light will make it difficult, so you have to pay double the attention to composition, textures etc. Sometimes, going B&W helps with the often faded colors. 
Here are two example from Iceland, shot during the noon hours (view it full screen, as g+  thumbnail compression vandalized the image, especially the second one).

A wonderful creation by Allah...marvellous..!!!
 
Not exactly great production values here, but the point made about "reflective light" is spot on.  We just need to look at things around us differently in order to see them more clearly.

Jay, I could spam your photos with 227 +1s, or I could just say "beautiful work and many thanks for posting" to the entire album. If I had all day to marvel at these, I would do so happily and click to my heart's content. My company, however, feels that I should do work, though. Sorry!
 
+Jeremy W LOL!! Thank you for NOT spamming me. I am just glad that you enjoy the photos. 
 
Great inspiration and examples to go off of!
