beautiful shot. I struggle when trying to take landscape shots what time of day is best, where should the light in the sky be? This works really well and helps define the uneven hillside and give the photo great depth and form.
Do you have a particular time of day that works best for you?
Early morning around sunrise and the hour after it, and the hour leading up to sunset are best for long shadows, greater depth and richer colour. I much prefer these times. Winter is a little more forgiving with he sun staying lower in the sky all day.
