I think it's a good idea to have an idea of the kind of shoot you want, the exact photo you expect to see. I always have that in mind heading into a specific landscape or getting started on a particularly scenic trail. Having that perfect shot in your mind prior to arriving helps find your best frame when looking through the lens.
