Returning to the same location again and again can really be benefit to nature photographers. Yes, sometimes you end up posting several photos from that location but it's okay. The point really is to see how dramatic nature can change from day to day or in some cases minute by minute.
Thought you might want to see what is in the bag I am taking to the Grand Teton National Park this coming week. If you have any questions ask in the comments below.
Patience isn't one of those things that I have ever been known for... Just ask my wife!
Photography has helped me become more patient as I have seen images pass right through my fingers because I moved when I shouldn't have.
When you first arrive at a photo location what do you do? Do you immediately take out your tripod, fully extend the legs, and put your camera on the head in the landscape position? If you do all these things (and I am guilty too) then you are limiting your creativity.
What is the value of a photographer? What is a good photograph worth to you?
When you seek out a surgeon do you simply find one with a scalpel? Is that the value of that doctor? Is his/her worth tied up in the cost of a single piece of equipment or is it based on the combination of years of training, experience, and equipment?
