Landscape

This week, it’s all about landscape photography. Show us your best establishing shot, out in nature or in an urban setting.

After roadtripping through Utah’s surreal geological landscape last year, I bought a US National Parks pass and vowed to explore more of North America’s parks. There’s just so much to see.

On a recent hike up Ryan Mountain in Joshua Tree National Park, I saw panoramic views of Southern California’s desert dotted with Joshua trees, rocky formations, and mountains far off in the distance:

For this week’s challenge, share a photo of a landscape: a wide establishing shot of a scene in nature or an urban setting. Landscape photography is typically displayed in a horizontal orientation; before getting started, read photographer Jeff Sinon’s tips on composition and finding the best shot.

  1. Excellent theme – looking forward to checking everyone’s out. It inspired me to finally post these from a trip three years ago, a 23-image gallery of some sublimely beautiful landscapes near Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni, the planet’s largest salt flat. Better late than never. Thanks for the prompt. 🙂 Enjoy! Would love to hear your thoughts.
