Photographing the Landscape in Midday Light

You have probably heard the advice to photograph during the "golden hours" just after sunrise and before sunset for the best light on the land. But when you are on vacation with the family, you may not have the flexibility to shoot when everyone else wants breakfast or dinner. You can still make acceptable scenic shots during the middle of the day if you look for subjects that are front-lit. This prevents harsh, dark shadows from obscuring much of the view.
