    This sounds as if light was portable, which of course it might be, but then it's not a matter of finding it but having it.  Otherwise, the location and background come with that right light one found there at that moment, so for natural light anticipating when the most favourable lighting conditions might be present would be a more practical advice (but of course would ruing the "mistake" of finding a suitable location first ;)
