Landscapes Pictures - Just Before Any Getaway
I actually don't think there's any other photography subject that rewards effort as much as landscape does. To shoot extremely good landscape graphics you need to be up before the rooster and house after the nightingale goes to sleep. Sometimes you need to walk and it's often too cold or too hot. In the light of this, I reckon that your comfort is as important as technique and your photographic eye.
You can't - or at least I can not - take great picture if you're hot, cold, or drained. I can't walk if I 'm fed up with having a sunburnt neck or if my feet are raw. Although the weather can't be controlled by you, there are some basic steps you can take to ensure your comfort level is as high as possible. Once all your personal needs are cared for, you'll be free to shoot at masterpieces. This list features some of the points whom I believe are crucial for any landscape photography trip:

Wear a top that's a collar.
Consistently carry a hat: these are essential 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.
If it's sunny don't' forget your sunblock.
Take a torch in the event you get lost and you also must locate your way in the dark.
A space blanket is useful in case you must stay warm, and it folds down to a rather small size.
Take a cell phone in the event of emergency, battery full charge.
In case you are driving recall to milestone your car: park it near a huge tree or rock, for example - it is easier to get lost than you may believe.
A compass will help too (but don't leave it in the auto!)
