After years of shooting a mix of everything (except people) I’ve decided that I will remove BIF from my list of subjects and instead use that time on landscape photography. About 20 years ago it used to be my main subject so it’s a ‘homecoming’ of sorts. I’ve been watching a lot of videos online lately and am amazed by the gorgeous photos of mountains and valleys, etc…. It dawned on me a few days ago that this is going to be a lot harder than I remember. We have so many trees that unless I’m at the water’s edge you can’t really see very much. If I go hiking the only thing I can see is the path in front of me because the trees are so thick. Even sometimes driving along the coast the view is often obstructed by trees with glimpses here or there of the water.
Don’t get me wrong, I love trees but I wish our landscape was a little more varied sometimes. Can anyone else on here not see the landscape for the trees? I think I’ll have to focus on coastal landscapes.
