Discussion in 'Landscape' started by Leslie Reid, Jan 2, 2019.

  1. You are invited to upload one or more of your landscape photos and, if you’d like, to accompany your image with some commentary: challenges you faced in making the image? your intent for the image? settings? post-processing decisions? why you did what you did? the place and time? or an aspect you’d like feedback on? And please feel free to ask questions of others who have posted images or to join the discussion. If you don’t feel like using words, that’s OK too—unaccompanied images (or unaccompanied words, for that matter) are also very much welcomed. As for the technicalities, the usual forum guidelines apply: files < 1 MB; image size <1000 px maximum dimension.

    Happy New Year to all; and no matter how last year went for you, here’s hoping that the new one is better. Here’s a quiet little moss-scape to offset the bombardment from midnight yesterday. Actually, as moss-scapes go, I guess it's not all that quiet.

  2. My post this week is an homage to a place that I love. I was driving up into the foothills of the Sierras to visit friends around 1980 and stopped to take a few pictures of the canyon. I had lived in the town up the ridge throughout much of the 70's. It was home and the landscape always felt welcoming. It was a place full of good times and good friends in the shade of tall pines. It is a landscape now changed and people will struggle with the loss in so many ways, for a long time. There used to be a large sign on the side of the road that said "You are now ascending into Paradise". I don't know if the sign is still there, but the sentiment was true. My image was taken off the Skyway, looking up Butte Creek Canyon while ascending into beautiful, unforgettable Paradise, California.
