It was a beautiful fall afternoon in my neck of the woods after a spell of rainy and overcast days. The evening sun was lighting up our wildflower garden.

Best regards and thanks for looking

Thank you all.

My wife got these started several years ago with few-dollar bag of wildflower seeds from Home Depot. Been well worth it. They begin blooming in very early summer and continue into November until the first few hard frosts kill them off.

Here's another from the same shoot. I always find the white ones the most difficult to get a result I like.

Landscape?

Fair question, and since I'm new here I'm not yet aware of the local's consensus on what constitutes a landscape image.

That said, there are plenty of examples in the general landscape community that display closer views of the details of given landscapes - sometimes quite close or quite a small piece of the whole. How close is too close to be a landscape? How small a detail or portion? And does the subject matter, e.g. a frame filled with an elk is no longer a landscape but becomes a wildlife while pebbles on the shore of Lake Superior remain a landscape? Are flowers more like elk or more like pebbles on the shore?

Not trying to be antagonistic. It seems like what's in the landscape category isn't generally well defined. And I would like to know the community here considers appropriate for the category as I appreciate the idea of not polluting.

Best regards

It depends on how you define landscape photography.  I don't think there is any one definition out there.  It can be the grand landscape, the intimate landscape, details and why not flowers if you want to focus on that.  Personally, while overall I prefer the grand landscape genre, I do close ups occasionally (including flowers):

You're right, Scotto, it's not well defined, which is why I'm asking the question.

Nice shots, though.

Thank you Russ. Prior to this thread, I hadn't really thought much about what exactly what I consider landscape. Being one who likes philosophical discussions  :), I do find it an interesting thing to talk about.
