vertical landscapes


Another Colorado roadscape from my TansAm journey. Cycling across the States meant going through these immense and gorgeous landscapes, so I came back home with quite a collection of landscape photos. I don’t have a lot of experience with landscape photography so this was a new challenge to me. Personally I think that it doesn’t take that much to take a fairly decent landscape photo. But taking great landscape pictures that stand out amongst the rest is true craftmanship. It requires experience, talent for ‘reading’ a landscape and most of all passion for it. Three things I’m lacking when it comes to landscape photography I’m afraid. Nevertheless that didn’t stop me from taking tons of landscape photos. A while into my trip I came to realize that I was shooting nearly all my landscapes vertically. Just because that’s how I photograph: probably about 80% of my photos are verticals. It’s not intentional, it just happens and I like to think that it’s becoming part of my style. But of course there’s this traditional distinction between vertical/portrait and horizontal/landscape photo formats. I’ve never been such a fan of categorising things, so here are ten more vertical landscapes:

  1. nice!!!! i never really try to play with vertical landscapes, but you’ve totally inspired me!!!!!

  2. Great subject … I take a lot of vertical landscape photos too. (And, I didn’t even realize it until a friend asked me to provide them with some horizontal landscapes.) I think it is good to try both when you are at a particular location.

  3. Love these! I can’t wait to get out on the road now. Thanks for sharing
