When you stumble upon an amazing place on this Earth, one often wants to revisit. It's like a sea turtle returning to same beach year after year - you know it is amazing, so why look elsewhere.
I do love to explore new places and often find myself exploring roads or points on a map just to see what is there. By all means, explore.
I will say, though, that returning to places over and over again can allow you to really observe and see what makes that place special. And if you live in a region that enjoys four distinct seasons, you can see that same place change throughout the year.
Below is an image of Spirit Falls created in June when the leaves were bright green and the water was flowing high. It feels bright and alive due to the churned up water reflecting so much light.
Here is an image of the same waterfall created in October of the same year. Notice the green has faded a bit, replaced by fall colors, and the water level is not nearly as high. The big waterfall on the right is flowing at all.
I next want to photograph this same scene with fresh snow and ice on the ground. Ill keep you posted.
Returning to the same landscape again and again, year after year can help you really get to know the location, which is a strong benefit in photography. To observe and photograph the nuance of a landscape as created by changes of the season can yield some amazing images.
Enjoy the new places traveled, and those you might revisit.
