Sometimes I enjoy just photographing the surface because I think it can be as revealing as going to the heart of the matter.

    He’s hit the perfect grade with no pedaling necessary! The clouds have nice dimension to them, not appearing flat.

    I think Annie over-simplified her approach. She had a photo assignment and was ready to do anything, but if the surface revealed what she aimed for, she recognized it and shot.

    What a pretty picture! I love the general ‘hue’ of it, like a 70’s polaroid!

    Though I tend to go for the macro, a landscape occasionally calls me. COmposed beautifully.

    Would I have cropped this? Would I have cloned out the wires? Probably . But you didn’t and it is a great picture

    Annie Leibovitz is right, a beautiful photo as proof.

    I’m comforted by the fact that Annie said that, Sherri, because so often I tend to concentrate on the forest (the surface?) instead of the trees. But like your image, the context is often as important to me as the subject of your image.
