ah man you took the words out of my head, i really appreciate the feedback. thats exactly why im so hooked on shooting here in wyoming, its mostly rolling hills of wind and grass, with mountains in the distance, not the yellowstone everyone thinks it is. its got such an alien and desolate feel here that every "yellowstone/wyoming" photographer has missed since day one
my only problems are that my only source of lights is my headlights to my toyota, and i cant take that everywhere (as much as a i get stuck trying) my Ricoh aint no 70D or god forbid an a7s. so my biggest advantage is to use street lights in the distance as backing and flood lights.
Pic related is for another point. 1) this scene was deep in winter, obviously, and no lights are used except for the moon and the light bounced off of the snow 2) its extremely difficult to find time to shoot in winter cause of the rapey temps we get here (the first week of jan. had a high of -6)
i do have a few good places that are sort of a treasure trove of good shots waiting to happen, i just gotta wait for time to get there
