When I am out in nature, especially in the American Southwest, the grand vistas can sometimes be visually overwhelming. At times like that (or when the light is just not right), I like to focus on single elements of the landscape, looking for interesting shapes, patterns, or colors. These photographs can vary in scale from tiny details of plants to whole mountain sides. The final images visually engage the viewer with their abstract and artistic qualities.
If you find any of the images especially interesting, I would love to hear about it.
