HypnoDrainage by Bob Larson

So I’m out and about hiking an area I’m thinking about making my next well trodden area. I’m unfamiliar with the place and I’m having a blast with terrain that I don’t know, but at the same time kind of apprehensive. I’m taking mental notes on where the sun is, what I’m looking at, what to expect during the “Golden Hour” when I shoot 90% of my landscapes. Well, in order to get to know the area I went out very early for me, and while I loved a lot of the landscapes that I saw, I hated the light at that time of day. To make a long explanation really long, I took notes on what would be cool later in the day, and shot a bunch of crap like drainage pipes and wood planks under bridges, anything that had shade. This shot was just off a path, I saw a little piece of pipe sticking out, jammed my lens in the front and shot without looking through the viewfinder. This one and a couple others that had nothing to do with landscapes turned out to be my favorites. 5 Hours shooting landscapes and this was what caught my eye afterward. Just keep shooting, even if it doesn’t fit with your “theme” for the day.
