We have all taken the postcard snapshots, hopping out of the car to take a quick pic of mountains or some scene that is far, far away. But landscapes often look better when they have a foreground, mid-ground and that far-away background. There is just more depth.
One of the best ways to do that is with a wide angle lens. They key is to get up close to something interesting in the foreground, go as low as you need to go, and let the mid-ground and the far-away background fill in the rest of the frame. Even a little patch of dried and cracked mud can make for that interesting foreground.
