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.
Rerenga Wairua (Cape Reinga), New Zealand.
Uluru, in the Australian Outback.
Kata Tjuta, in the Australian Outback.
In Senegal, not far from Dakar.
White Sands National Monument, New Mexico.
The pictures above are probably best viewed when clicked-through. Other submissions for the challenge can be seen here.
“Morning Has Broken” as performed by Cat Stevens
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
