Every Memorial Day weekend for the past 60 years the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment, known as the “Old Guard,” has paid homage to America’s fallen heroes by placing American flags by the graves of service men and women at Arlington National Cemetery.

While nothing beats practice and time spent in the field waiting for perfect light, there are a few essential tools that should be found in every landscape photographer’s bag. These photo accessories might not be as exciting as that new camera we all dream of, but they will help you take your photography to the next level much quicker than upping your megapixel count.

The EOS 80D is the latest iteration of Canon’s APS-C-chipped DSLRs that began with the introduction of the (no kidding) three-megapixel EOS D30 in 2000.
