Weekly Photo Challenge: Landscape

When I think about landscapes,  I think about the drama of the wide open spaces of Nature. My hope is to be able to capture this in pictures.  I also hope to be able to show the sometimes spectacular interaction between the skies and the earth.  I think of wide-angle shots and of panoramic viewing.   Here are some examples.

“Morning Has Broken” as performed by Cat Stevens
Eleanor Farjeon

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the world
Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dew fall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass
Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God’s recreation of the new day

“The End”
The Beatles

Oh yeah, all right
Are you going to be in my dreams
Tonight?

 

And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love
You make
