Gallery Sixty Two: The Abstract Landscape

Regular viewers of my cyberbook on expressive travel photography are well aware by now of two of my most essential galleries: Abstraction (Gallery One) and Light and the Landscape (Gallery Eighteen). In this, my sixty second gallery, I am combining the essential principles of both of those important galleries in order to demonstrate how to apply abstraction to express the beauty and meaning of the landscape.

I made these twenty abstracted landscapes on my recent trip along the Avenue of Volcanoes in the Cascade Mountains of Northern California and Central Oregon. I hope to gradually add images of more abstracted landscapes to this gallery on my future travels.

I present this gallery, as usual, in "blog" style. A large thumbnail is displayed for each image, along with a caption explaining how I intended to express my ideas. If you click on the large thumbnail, you can see it in its full size, as well as leave comments and read the comments of others. I hope you will be able to participate in the dialogue. I welcome your comments, suggestions, ideas, and questions, and will be delighted to respond.
