There is no greater enjoyment in photography than shooting pictures of exciting locales and then marveling at the end results you get. Landscape photography is one of the most satisfying aspects of photography. It also satisfies your urge to travel and explore.
To enjoy landscape photography, you need not have the best of equipment. A good quality travel zoom compact will also give very acceptable results. However, for the ultimate in quality, we would recommend you opt for a D-SLR or a mirrorless camera. It is widely assumed that most landscape photography only involves wide-angle lenses; however, you will be surprised at the number of times you need to pick up a telephoto to isolate a particular subject. A macro to magnify subjects that are difficult to appreciate with a pure naked eye could also come in useful.
