Find an Ordinary Spot and Make it an Extraordinary Shot

I’ve always seen amazing landscapes photos. Sometimes I wish I could be there an enjoy the moment but sometimes I’ve been there and my memory doesn’t match the landscape photo. I’ve been in a couple places that I thought were kind of boring but then I found out photos of those places and they look amazing!

I think it all depends on your perspective. You have to see things from a different angle and find the beauty of life everywhere.

I’ve been living in Rexburg, Idaho for almost a year and I still don’t know many cool places in the area. One day I decided to drive around the city during sunset. After a couple of minutes, I found this land but there were no animals or cool trees around it. I walked around for a couple of minutes and when I was about to leave, I saw my car with the sunset behind. I laid down on the floor and took a couple of shots.

Here is another example of an ordinary spot. This is an LDS Temple located in Rexburg. I found some flowers around the place and came up with this shot.

You don’t need to find a perfect spot for an extraordinary shot. You need to look close to your surroundings and you will be surprised at the things you can find and the shots you can get.
