Next time: As Pop Photo's frequent Nature columnist Tim Fitzharris keeps telling us, early and late in the day are the best times for scenic shooting. This not only throws more light into the shadows, but the light, even when it's direct, is often softer and warmer. It can add extra dimension, too. Aside from shooting at a different time of day, you can wait for different weather -- midday shooting can work with overcast and mist -- or wait for a cloud to move overhead. Barring that, you might also try using a polarizer. By reducing reflections, it can sometimes deepen the tone of rocks.
