Colourful Countryside Photography

Countryside landscapes are beautiful when coupled with mother-nature like mountains, animals, weather and people. Vast countryside is best captured with a wide angle lens and a small aperture – and a polariser filter or gradient filter can help enormously when coping with the spread of light. Although, High Dynamic Range Photography is very popular with landscape photography, which combines multiple light intensities to produce a better photograph that comes close or even better than what a human eye would see – so you might like to try that as well!

Browse these photographs while analysing the photographs for clues to how you might have photographed it or improved it with your own perspective or techniques – for the next time you are out there shooting, also have a look into the photographer’s work for more ideas by simply clicking their image!
