Landscapes and Cropping (Day 15)

I love landscapes,  although I rarely do justice to the beauty that captivates the natural eye.  For this assignment, I chose several of my favorite landscape photographs to showcase, including a few that were used for previous Photo 101 themes.

My first two photos were taken last summer (August 2015) in The Badlands National Park, South Dakota. This stark area earned it’s name. The rock formations were formed from wind and rain erosion and there is little vegetation.  If you ignore the greenery in the foreground, I imagine this is what the moon would look like.

On this same trip, we drove through the Colorado Rockies. The towering peaks never cease to amaze me.

As we drove down the highway, we came across a creek of melted mountain snow.

Several years ago we visited The Arches National Park in Moab, Utah. The sandstone formations are incredible.

  1. Thank you Vicky. Generally when I look at the photos after I take them they just don’t seem so awe inspiring. This class is really helping me however.
