Intimate Landscapes

Intimate landscapes differ from traditional landscape photography as these images typically do not portray the horizon or sky.  Where many landscape images incorporate an intriguing foreground to a grand vista, intimate landscapes entail foregrounds which hold viewers’ interest through smaller compositions.  Successful images often lack a sense of scale or embrace the abstract, making viewers ponder the subject’s context while focusing on the finer details involving colors, textures, patterns, or shapes.
