A couple of mouths ago I was in Sweden. I spent an afternoon outside Uppsala in Hågahögen. It's a small nature reserve with some beautiful view. I was trying out my camera since it was brand new then. I was so eager that I forgot about these photos. But a couple of days ago I reinstalled my computer and discovered these again.
It's a completely different landscape compared to Switzerland. Almost flat and long sunny evenings. This makes it a lot easier in some aspects and harder in other. Is is off course much easier to get that nice warm evening light while there are no mountains casting a shadow, but on the other hand it might be harder to find those dramatic scenes.
I know people say that you should stay in your backyard and get to know it to get the most out of your landscape and push you to find new angles. But I don't agree fully, it can be so nice with a change, find new things, don't knowing what you are going to find. Using the light and weather you are served. That also pushes your photography. So bring your camera when you go for a vacation. You don't have to shoot every day but one or two days is always fun and you will develop your skills for the unexpected.
