Summer is a traditionally difficult period for landscape photography. Reaching a location for sunrise is a psychological, rather than logistical , battle as the days get longer, and morning alarm gets earlier. The 'golden hour' is all too brief, giving way to harsh light. However, this does not mean there aren't images to be had. The long evenings and sunsets become a substitute for the early mornings. Woodlands change daily as the ferns begin to consume them. Wild flowers begin to bloom, and insects and butterflies can be found for those willing to spend the time to look. Finally, Infrared offers a method for taking images, even on the brightest of days.
