Why is it ?

Post by McFarmer » Sun Mar 15, 2009 2:50 pm

Seeing the fantastic photos from Danube and JD and others I can't help but wonder why elevation is what makes scenery special. All those landscapes if you were to smash them flat would not get a third look, maybe a second but not something one would travel very far for. Heights and water seem to make an area attractive.

Do we see the unattainable here ? The forbidding ? Is this a silly question ?

I have included a photo of our pasture that borders a small natural lake, lots of wildlife. I don't imagine a dozen people have seem this particular area in the last ten years. Now if we were to put a 1000ft precipice in the background it would be a national park with hoards coming every year.

Iowa has that problem, very beautiful but oh so flat. (repressed comment about wife here)

That is, without doubt, one of the best photos I've seen for a long time. It reminde me of long summers evenings sitting fishing with no-one and nothing to disturb me.

I have some great photos containing scenery, or of looking down from a hillside, but these are some of my favourites, and taken in the famously flatlands of Lincolnshire (ok, the secind one is taken from a hill, but it's only a very small hill!!)

A picture is indeed worth a thousand words. What is the crop in the last photo ?
