Today, snap a picture of a landscape. Focus on the gestalt — the entire setting as a whole, like the shot above of the English countryside in Kent — rather than a specific subject or focal point within the scene. The setting itself is the star.
Above is a photo I captured one Sunday after church. Corinne and I decided to take a day trip on Skyline Drive. While up on the mountain we were able to witness the makings of a thunder boomer. It was pretty awesome to be able to see this from a distance.
The landscape above was taken at Rye Beach New Hampshire. As I recall it was rather cold that day and the moisture was heavy in the air.
This photo was taken on the United States Military Academy at West Point. Corinne and I went to see Josh, my son, a cadet there at the time. The couple seen in the far distance is Josh and Ivy, his girlfriend.
