Natural Landscape Photos

Through and through, I am a landscape photographer. I prefer to use a 28mm lens over all others, offering just enough breadth and not much distortion. I gravitate to big scenes, majestic scenes, natural scenes. Scenes that say, “Mother Nature has been at work here.” But what really makes landscape shots work is when there is the juxtaposition of grandeur and finite detail. Hence, the individual drops of water visible in the shot below taken inside a glacial crevasse (an unsupervised and probably foolish little side trek I took years ago in Alaska, but of course well worth it now!). Or, carefully examine the Lake Louise photo – the Chateau Lake Louise is clearly visible in front of the Lake, a grand structure rendered laughable by the scale of the mountains and glaciers behind it.
