What Does Landscape Photography Mean to You?

31 Dec

I thought  I’d wrap up the year by posting some of my favorite images taken in 2011.  I’ve decided to feature these images in a series called “Landscape Photography Is….” I hope you all enjoy and happy New Year!

    Absolutely gorgeous! I love landscape photos, but I’m too poor to travel anywhere. So thank you so much for these photos! 🙂

    The happiest new year to you! Hope 2012 is good for you! 🙂

    To me landscape photography is about connecting with nature. I enjoy the journey as much as the destination. There’s nothing like hiking a trail and breathing fresh mountain air – it’s so exhilarating!

    It’s tough to pick a favorite – they’re all beautiful. I really like “San Juan National Forest, Colorado, October” because it looks like the forest goes on forever. I’d love to see that in person! Thanks for sharing your vision and creativity with us!

    Hey, Michael!

    I’m a bit late to the party here, so I hope you see this. That is a wonderful suite of images you captured last year. I really enjoy them all. I agree with what you describe landscape photography being all about for you. I find for myself, and what should be for all IMO to be the most important factor, God’s gift to us. It says in scripture that the glory of God’s creation is “PLAIN” all around us. I think landscape photography is a very effective way for us to make that connection and stay aware of the awesome power of God, and his love for all of us! I find myself being sad for those that don’t have a reason to get out and experience the world in the sweet light. Some of my most profound spiritual moments have been when I’m alone in the cold and the darkness. All is quite, I can see my breath in the chilled morning air. I can feel my heartbeat harder than normal and the faint sounds of the start of a new day start to become audible. Everyone should experience this IMO.

    You know if we all had a little more God in our lives, and a little less hollywood, the world would most definately be a better place! :^)

    They’re all excellent, but my favorites are Joshua Tree , Antelope Canyon “color”, San Juan NAtional Forest, and of course, the last one-Tonto National Forest.

    Best Regards,
    Chris Chamberlain
