I should take more landscapes in 2022. Any suggestions on what I should change or do differently vs. shooting birds?

Thanks. 

I have to use my P900 for landscapes since I currently don't have a wide angle lens for my DSLRs so I usually just use the camera's 'Landscape' setting. I won't get into the compositional aspects because that's subjective but basic composition rules/suggestions like the 'rule of thirds' still apply.

I have to say, as an ignorant tourist, when we went to northeast South Africa I expected it to be all Savannah as that is where you expect to see African birds and animals.  Well, I was wrong!  Just west of the Savannah is a serious mountain range, with deep canyons.  Every tourist that travels into the mountains ends up at this overlook of Blyde River Canyon.  It was worth the trip.949991301_BlydeRiverCanyonSouthAfrica.thumb.jpg.7aa58409fa83b8b44c8c915e79f9429e.jpg

I guess this might be considered a "landscape".  In 1967 I was in Korea in the military.  I bought a 35mm Asahi Pentax and three lenses and went out into the culture and started taking pictures when I had time off, which was limited because of the capture of the USS Pueblo by the North Koreans while I was there.  I was stationed at Kunsan Air Base near the mouth of the Kum River.  The Yellow Sea tide dried and flooded 7 miles of shoreline each tide change.  The huge tides in the Yellow Sea were one of MacArthur's big challenges in landing at Inchon during the Korean War.  The small junk fishing boats would head out into the sea at high tide and come back on the next high tide.  I took this picture when I was riding a small ferry, packed with people and about 1 foot of freeboard crossing the river.  This was the first camera that I owned and I have been taking pictures ever since.JunkonKumRIverr1967.thumb.jpg.44f4840111525630a30782204215afca.jpg

Two pictures taken from Uno Lodge on the edge of Copper Canyon in Mexico, when it was still safe to travel there.  Uno Lodge is owned and operated by the Tarahumara Indians.  There is a 2000 ft sheer drop, without a guardrail just outside the lodge which is a courage challenge to get near.  These pictures were taken at sunrise over the canyon, which is actually six canyons, and the deepest in North America.  The second has a blue filter to bring out the sun's rays.CopperCanyonfromUnoLodge.thumb.jpg.18acb774af748018b8361bd1ae74eb53.jpgCopperCanyonUnoLodge.thumb.jpg.3666f292c21be4c1a5616387444c5836.jpg
