This kind of photography might be difficult at times, but if you follow certain tips, it would not only make your task easier but also it would help you to improve and enhance your landscape photography.

Keep the horizon horizontal
It hardly matters where or what you are shooting, just ensure that the horizon is level. Obviously if you are in the mountainous or hilly region, then the skyline would not be horizontal, however you would get to know better whether the image is right or not. For the digital photos, you can correct the fault in the software, although by doing this you would lose the definition and also the edges would be cropped

Over exposure in the snow
This might be strange, as the snow reflect lots of light and the camera is fooled with the thinking that it is very bright and thus it reduces the exposure accordingly. Therefore the snow comes as gray and other details remain dark. But there are some cameras, which have the automatic settings that automatically over expose.

Move around for the best shot
If you are taking the photo of something which is there for specific time for example: rainbow, sunset, than you should move around to get the best shot. Just moving few steps also can make a huge lot of difference. And if you are using the digital camera, then click many photos from all the possible directions and also with different settings, as long as you got memory in the camera, it would not cost you extra, later you can delete the unwanted photos.

Most of the people take photos of the family in the background of an important landmark. But just think you can click the family photograph anywhere and anytime. But you would not get an opportunity to click that particular landmark. Do not sacrifice the clarity and focus of the landmark.
Natural techniques
