In this project I was working on the concept of a grand landscape. Beside IR BW I love excessive color and scale. Well, sometimes I can take it too far but hopefully not today. I love to travel and am in awe of the beauty all around us. To get out of our everyday surroundings, it helps me see the Grand. A few of these shots are HDR to boost the saturation and even out the extremes of the exposure. There is also one that is a merged panoramic. I find when I get back from one of these trips, I start seeing my everyday surrounding in a new light and see opportunity in my own backyard. I often discuss with my photo students that photography is often an art of seeing the everyday as new. But these photos are more out of the ordinary landscape.
