I put my camera away during summer

Well, almost, I certainly don't shoot many landscapes in our Los Angeles deserts. Brown sky, blasting sun, dried vegatation, not a cloud, gives me the sudders.

If you wish to do that type of photography you've got to do some special tricks. A polarizer can help, so can bumping the saturation and contrast, there are some good and easy photoshop tricks (contrast masking, lab color) that can be used.

One basic problem is that our eyes have evolved to pick out subtle differences. Cameras are better with extremes. Even an obvious rainbow can be diminished into almost nothing by the camera's eye.
