Tip #11: Be Patient
Nature is constantly happening around us (yes, I know, an obvious statement). But just because it is always happening doesn't mean it will be happening where you are or that what is happening is exciting, dramatic or unique enough to photograph. Just because you got up for sunrise doesn't mean the sky at sunrise will have the drama of an Ansel Adams photograph; the sky might be completely void of clouds. And just because you found the pair of nesting bald eagles doesn't mean they will be doing anything other than sitting on a branch for hours.
So be patient. The action will happen or you might have to revisit a destination or subject frequently to get that unique shot you are envisioning. In the meantime, enjoy being in the outdoors and appreciate the down time you have with Mother Nature.
