Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer- and often the supreme disappointment. Ansel Adams

Life is like a landscape. You live in the midst of it, but can describe it only from the vantage point of distance. Charles Lindbergh

Beautiful landscape!

I could look on thee

For hours,–unmindful of the storm and strife,

And mingled murmurs of tumultuous life.

Here, all is still as fair–the stream, the tree,

The wood, the sunshine on the bank: no tear

No thought of time’s swift wing, or closing night

Which comes to steal away the long sweet light,

No sighs of sad humanity are here.

Here is no tint of mortal change–the day

Beneath whose light the dog and peasant-boy

Gambol with look, and almost bark, of joy

Still seems, though centuries have passed, to stay.

Then gaze again, that shadowed scenes may teach

Lessons of peace and love, beyond all speech.

Poem by William Lisle Bowles

Landscapes are one of my favourite forms of photography. People are difficult to capture properly, but with the right composition and subject choice, landscapes are always stunning.
