 Post subject: Heat radiation

You've probably tried landscapes on warm days when heat radiation is rising and making the air slightly turbulent. How do you compensate for this, so distant objects don't appear wavy or jagged?

Shoot bnearer to sunrise or sunset. :P Landscape photography usually benefits from lower sun angles so it's a win-win situation. That said, I'm a lazy so and so and I'd rather be in bed at sunrise or putting my feet up in the evening. :P :lol: :roll:

hmm...for some reason i've never had a problem with this...

i'd suggest shooting from underneath a tree or on some grass...

green areas have been known to be significantly cooler than non-vegetated areas...

if you can't find a tree/grass/vegetation...pitch a tent...
