Photo Challenge: Light and Landscape, a Continual Awakening

For me, a landscape does not exist in its own right, since its appearance changes at every moment; but the surrounding atmosphere brings it to life – the light and the air which vary continually. For me, it is only the surrounding atmosphere which gives subjects their true value.

      Nice to see you again. I’m anxious for Spring’s arrival. We have had an extended winter, with April acting much more like March. I saw an interesting post from the Detroit Institute of Arts, which described Monet’s approach to painting landscapes. The traditional approach was to paint the landscape as if the viewer was looking through a window. Monet changed that; he tried to change the perspective so that the viewer was “in” the landscape. I like that perspective for photography.
