Timo, Wonderful! Bravo! You're making me think about re-thinking my views on landscape.

A different and fresh take on a pastoral theme. Well done, to the point that I can hardly find anything to correct or improve (not that I consider myself an ultimate arbiter, of course). And I can see why Russ seems excited by a landscape: it has a human presence ;)

I also find it refreshing to see something else other than ubiquitous American iconic landscapes, as much as I admire them (and as much as I am guilty as charged in pursuing them). An intimate location, closer to home, speaks more about the photographer than the location, making it more personal... and less open to Rob's general criticism of landscape photography, i.e., "... [merely] catching something [God's handiwork] that's already there..."

Timo

Landscape photography is a celebration of the world and our place within it, and as such is a worthy subject to pursue. The surroundings we inhabit mould our consciousness and feed our spirituality, and our response to this is a rightful and necessary part of our artistic journey. Photograph what you love, and love what you make pictures of, should be our guiding principle - then there should never be any need to apologise for our subject, merely to acknowledge all too often our inadequacy in depicting it.

Your pictures have nothing to apologise for, either in subject or technique, and this is another fine example.

John, Your artist's statement probably belongs over in The Coffee Corner in "Getting into a gallery." I partially agree with you, but many "artistic journeys" end up between Scylla and Charybdis

Well . . . I'd probably had one too many beers last night

That's a fine place to be, Russ. It's only when you're there and you deviate from your course that the trouble starts.

Thanks again for all your comments. Fun to hear your opinions on the other side of the world and say that the beauty we all like to watch. This is very important to me a hobby that I can be bothered to better the actual work of the photographer. Thanks again!!
