Shooting the Same Locations Multiple Times

I'm sure you've heard someone say before "Technically, you could never shoot the same photo twice.".  That couldn't be more true in nature or landscape photography.

Let's take this barn in GTNP on Mormon Row for instance.  It's been photographed a zillion times.  I've photographed it about 10 or more times now myself.  While, I still don't think I have the best shot I'll get of it, I got the one I am most happy with, so far, this past spring.  This is one of the reasons I will shoot the same locations multiple times.  There is always something different with Mother Nature.  If you photographed this same scene every day you would get a different image each time.

I always enjoy photographing a new location but many times I will revisit the same locations multiple times before I get a shot I'm pleased with.  I may be pleased with an image I take at a location then when I return I may have a better sky, or warmer light that I think makes my new image better.
