For a while now, I have been drawn to the challenge of photographing new or fresh landscape compositions. The more time I dedicate to this, the more I find the necessity to veer further off the beaten path. This however, is not always the case, but the more I explore, the bigger feeling of accomplishment I feel, when finding what I believe to be, a new composition. I have also recently entered the landscape vertical world of photography. I have gained much appreciation for the visually pleasing form of the vertical landscape composition format. Especially where I live in the Southwest, I will continue to practice this technique whenever possible, with the hope of capturing eye-catching landscape images, during future explorations.
