Landscapes Pictures - Prior To Any Journey
I do not think there's any other photography subject that rewards attempt as much as landscape does. To shoot extremely good landscape images following the nightingale goes to sleep you have to be up before the rooster as well as home. There are times that you have to walk all day and it's also generally too hot or too cold. In the light of this, I reckon your comfort is as important as your photographic eye and technique.
You can't - or at least I can't - take great picture if you're cold, hot, or drained. I can't walk if my feet are raw or if I 'm fed up with having a sunburnt neck. Even though you can't control the weather, there are some basic steps you can take to ensure your comfort level is as high as possible. Once your personal needs have all been cared for, you will be free to shoot masterpieces. The following list comprises some of the points that I believe are essential for practically any landscape photography trip:

Put on a top that has a collar.
Consistently carry a hat: these are vital in both cold and hot climates.
Wear good hiking boots that are waterproof with thick socks.
Take energy bars to eat.
Carry a complete water bottle.
When it's bright do not' forget your sunblock.
Take a torch in the event you get lost and you also need to find your way in the dark.
A space blanket is useful should you must stay warm, and it folds down to a very small size.
Take a cell phone in the event of crisis, battery full charge.
If you're driving remember to watershed your car: park it near a vast tree or rock, for example - it is more easy to get lost than you might think.
A compass will help also (but don't leave it in the auto!)
