Beautiful Scenery Photography
by Photo Exhibition on 23 May 2013 permalink
Have you ever been gobsmacked at the awesomeness of a landscape? For some of us that might mean having to travel a long way from home...What about coming across some image which rests your soul, where all is still and majestic...
We are visually wired individuals and sometimes we receive dreams and visions which bypass the power of words. Pictures can frame themselves on the screen of our mind and call deep unto deep. Sometimes an image can trigger a cascade of thoughts and emotions because we associate certain feelings with a location we have visited in the past. Without knowing it, you find yourself transported through time and space into a new vista of learning and experience.
The scenery is what draws you in. You are compelled to explore peaks and vales. You follow a stream; you visit a cave; you smell the breeze on a hilltop. The topography of the landscape calls you to investigate its surface and features. You mentally estimate the slope between two spots. You imagine a path of travel.
As far as beauty is concerned, photography does a fine job at capturing colours and contrasts of lights and shadows. A magnificent sky is a finishing backdrop - inviting you to scan the horizon for clues as to what might lie beyond its border.
The weather ensures that even the most static image is always ever-changing. The sun does its trajectory from east to west. At night the moon phases in and out over a whole month. Rain will make everything greener. Snow will shroud the ground white. Icicles will shine in the sun. Trees will shed leaves and the wind will scatter them.
The appeal of artistic photography takes over where the master painters left off. We seek solace in an image that speaks peace and contentment to us. We want to hang it on our wall so that as we pass by, some of its character rubs on to us.
Curiously those images would be devoid of human civilisation. Like as if by our own admission - the world was better before we spoilt it by our sheer presence.
A beautiful scenery photography has the power to call us onto a spiritual plane. You would have to be very upset with God to deny the craftsmanship of the Creator because what you see and experience can only draw you to seek his face.
