For many people, the word “landscape” typically conjures up images of snow-capped mountains, mighty rivers, and flower-covered meadows awash in the light of golden sunsets. But what if these photo utopias are beyond the bounds of a reasonable driving distance? What if your choices of places to photograph is limited to your immediate neighborhood or town? Are you skunked when it comes to landscape photography? The answer is, “No, not at all.”

Let’s start by defining our goal. A random Google check for a definition of the word “landscape” brings up the following:

  • All of the visible features of an area of countryside or land, often considered in terms of their aesthetic appeal (Oxford Languages)
  • A picture representing a view of natural inland scenery (Merriam Webster)
  • The visible features of an area of land, its landforms, and how they integrate with natural or manmade features (Wikipedia)

Given that criteria, landscapes worth photographing can be found pretty much anywhere regardless of how close or far you live from the nearest national park. The truth is, once you walk out your door, you are looking at landscapes. “Seeing” these landscapes involves setting your mind’s eye on your surroundings by taking note of how the varying forms, shapes, and shadows around you fall into place, and how these visual elements can be composed in a way that causes the viewer of your photograph to pause and take a closer look.
