Close Ups in The Landscape: Beauty in Nature, Part 2

While researching the last article, Landscapes: Finding Beauty in Nature, Part one,  I saw a quote also in Outdoor Photographer that suggested looking at the smaller “Intimate Detail”, which was the title by William Neil. I tend to always check out the larger surroundings looking for the picturesque views, and also looking at what can fill the frame to make it interesting. Too, though, I look for the smaller areas that we tend to over look : are unusual, have many shades and hues of color, shadows, or refections in them. continue..

On my journey to take pictures of the Cacapon Bridge, I went for a scouting tour when the lighting wasn’t right to take the bridge, and found a little bog along the side of the Cacapon River Road. The scene on the other side was a fence looking into a field with some hills in the back ground. I took a shot. More just to document my trip, and it turns out it makes a nice lesson piece on how the smaller things can catch our attention. The quote by William Neil “Rather than simply describing the wide view before me. I try to inhue my images with some magic and mystery by isolating special details I discover.” Outdoor Photographer: March 2011, Vol27. No2. ON Landscape “Intimate Detail”, by William Neil. 

This is why I am always looking at the whole surrounding down to the smallest detail, since at times unless you photograph it no one will see it, or get to appreciate  some of the intimate sides of nature that maybe we are the only ones to notice. I guess that is why I took the photo, below, to get give an example after reading that very quote.

The other thing I liked is the water droplets hanging off the wire to the fence. This depicts the day perfectly since it had rained early that morning, and the sky was still mostly cloudy and hazy. I took some artist liberty in cropping the image; to show the detail in the buds, and branches.

    Thanks Tina. I’m glad you found this article useful. Social media is such a fast-paced environment and there’s always so much for all of us to learn. No sooner have you mastered something than a new thing comes along. If you like, I suggest that you follow Jeremiah Owyang on Twitter – he’s done a lot of research in social strategies. All the best Tina.
