What is the best landscape for u?

Some people like mountains, some people like sea or ocean, some people like forest.
So the best landscape for me is
Foresting mountains inside sea   .

I like mountains and stormy weather - this is from my terrace in Andalucia, Spain.

bg1, that image seems like it's the victim of extreme compression artifacts, yet the file size is about two megabytes.

What's wrong?

Hi Jan
First image I've tried to upload, so I guess I've screwed up somewhere along the line. Will try to get ot right next time !!. I was really just trying to show the kind of landscape I like - more of the same (without the compression artifacts hopefully!!) on my website. Thanks for the observation.

Bernard,

Gorgeous, as always. Your mountain-scapes display tremendous variety, within what some might consider a fairly restrictive subject area.

Again, I thank you for bringing your Japan to those of us too far away to visit easily!

I find that I shoot best when I have an emotional connection to the landscape. I grew up on the Oregon coast, so I let memories of the good times I had on the seashore influence my photography. The same goes for the mountains. When I have worked hard to climb a peak or wall, I develop an understanding of the mountain. The feature is no longer just a pretty formation, it has something of a personalty. I find it difficult to just go to a national park and take photos. I have to spend some time exploring.

Hello Eric,

Thanks for the kind words, as always.

You raise an interesting point, to what extend are these mountainscapes of Japanese nature? They are of course Japanese because they have been taken in Japan, but wouldn't be possible to do about the same in just about any mountain range the same height?... just thinking out loud.

Cheers,
Bernard

Hi Bernard,

I agree that your mountain pictures may not look especially "Japanese", but I also feel that different mountain ranges throughout the world have different characteristics, I would even say different "personalities." In the American West, for example, the Rocky Mountains don't look (or feel, visually) at all like the Sierra Nevadas, or like the Canadian Rockies. In the mountain regions I have visited I haven't yet encountered a range with as many layers, all of similar height, as in your latest offering.

If I ever do get to Japan, I will certainly look you up, and hope to see lots more of your photos!

Best,

Eric

Phillip,

You nailed it! For me, too, an emotional connection is necessary. As an amateur, I am often glad that I have the freedom to show only work that I feel emotionally connected to, unlike many pros, who have to please the client every time.

Is the landscape you showed from the Oregon coast? It certainly evokes many of my own feelings about rocky coastlines. Thanks for sharing it.

Wayland, that is a fine image.  I too like landscapes with a human touch, but without the people.

I looked at your website.  Very nice images.  Do you live in the past a lot?
