The Gallery: Landscapes

by Hannah

I haven’t joined in with The Gallery for such a long time and I can’t even remember my last post. However it is never forgotten about rest assured and I often take a peek at people’s entries from time to time. Landscape photo’s are the type of photo’s that capture your attention or they don’t. We have all happily snapped away on holiday, especially in the era of 35mm films, only to be disappointed when we get them developed. I have sat there many a time flipping through picture after picture of nothing really special but at the time we needed to capture the moment. Often the finished result doesn’t truly reflect what you saw before you that day. That’s where digital photography is so amazing, you can scrap the ones that aren’t so good and simply snap away again. That’s not forgetting the effects you can now add to your photo’s to enhance them even more, in order to truly bring out their best.

 

Tranquility

 

This landscape photo was taken in Spain on the terrace of my parent’s villa. This place is our haven for my little family. I have spent many a time sat there looking out across the valley, feeling at peace and simply ‘thinking’. The open space and mountains surrounding give you a feeling of freedom and it feels a million miles from our lives here at home, with busy roads and houses cluttering the landscape. A breath of fresh air.

Go take a look at all the other entries over on Sticky Fingers to see lots of other meaningful captures…

wow that looks gorgeous…how lucky to have your parents living in such a beautiful place….we’re going somewhere in Portugal that looks similar in the summer – hoping for some good shots like this.
And I agree with what you say about the 35mm films…I don’t think I ever had a pack of photos that I was pleased with !

Stunning photo, and yes I fully appreciate the benefits of digital photography and a copy of CS5….I wouldn’t be without either….and mustn’t forget Photomatix for HDR…lol

I have never visited Spain, it is not somewhere that has ever appealed..I always think “Spain = Brits abroad” but this photo makes me think that I generalise far too much and there are plenty of areas of spain that don’t fall into the holiday maker trap and remain beautifully untouched..

Lou 🙂
