For The Love Of The Land


Rides through the country and my curiosity in seeing what was around the next curve developed a love for the landscape, as well as Americana, at a young age. As an art student and through the years I found myself being attracted to landscape paintings and artwork, more-so than other subjects. Early in my photography I experimented with many different subjects to come full circle … back to the land! That was when I finally accepted it as a big part of my niché, instead of trying to force subjects that were not authentic to me. Now, so many years later I haven’t wavered in my love of Mother Earth’s beauty and how she can present it in such wonderful ways. I seek not to just represent, but capture a unique moment while composing and exposing to record and express the beauty I see. Just being out in the landscape can be rewarding … exploring, breathing in the fresh air and listening to the quiet. I hope you enjoy these recent landscapes … I loved being there!

    My favorites are ‘Dancing Clouds’ and ‘Sunset Row’ as well! Simply stunning and I can fully understand enveloping yourself in that beauty!

  4. I think we (humans) are actually part of the nature and always have feeling of connection to it whether we are aware of it or not. Some may have stronger feeling than the others. I am with you that I have a feel for landscape pictures. These are wonderful landscape pictures!

    • Thank you! I know many people share this love … then there are those who have no respect for the land/environment … littering, dumping, riding off-road vehicles in fragile areas, etc.

  10. Hi, I enjoyed the landscapes in this post. The sky in ‘Dancing Clouds’ is amazing. You made good use of the opportunity that was presented to you at that moment.

    • Thank you … you hit the nail on the head! I was there photographing mountains in the opposite direction. This was way more interesting. I’m glad you stopped by!

  11. Sunset Row is a lovely capture of a softly coloured end of the day.

    • Thanks Mary … that is the third photo I’ve posted over the last couple of years of those trees. Each one was a little different and one was B&W. Hey … that might be a good idea for a future post … show images I have photographed more than once over the years,

  12. Oh, I love Pond on the Range, Dancing Clouds, and Sunset Row.

    Each so different and beautiful.
