You are always hearing about the "magic hour" or "blue hour" as having the best light for photography and that mid-day sunlight really isn't that well suited for things like landscapes.  Of course the morning and evening sunlight is really nice and my favorite time to shoot, but that doesn't mean I am only going to take photos during those time.  If you do it right, quality images can be obtained even in the middle of the day.

Below is a photo from my phone showing my camera and tripod setup and ready to take a few photos.  Yep, looks like a normal mid-day shot which supports the reason why you don't shot landscape in the middle of the day.  But what do you expect from a camera on a phone.

Below are two images that show it is possible to get food landscape photos in the middle of the day, assuming you set them up properly and add some post processing.  By now, we hopefully all know images from a DSLR require some post processing, right?

Let me know what you think.

Once again very nice.

Picture 1: For me I think I would zap out the fishermen on the second picture. 

Picture 2: I fine that stick on the rock distracting.

 

What do you think?

I have thought about taking the people out of shot one, but never really noticed the stick until now that you point it out.  Good eye.

 

The main thing I was testing here was taking landscape photos in the middle of the day, which is something you normally don't do.  I was really pleased with the results given how harsh the sun was at that time.
