LandscapesLandscapes is about everything you see in your visual field of vision. Some call it "capturing the entire landscape". The word "landscape" also describes how photos are presented with the long side of the photo at the top instead to the side (portrait view). Wikipedia defines landscapes as "A landscape is the visible features of an area of land, its landforms, and how they integrate with natural or man-made features. A landscape includes the physical elements of geophysically defined landforms such as (ice-capped) mountains, hills, water bodies such as rivers, lakes, ponds and the sea, living elements of land cover including indigenous vegetation, human elements including different forms of land use, buildings, and structures, and transitory elements such as lighting and weather conditions. Combining both their physical origins and the cultural overlay of human presence, often created over millennia, landscapes reflect a living synthesis of people and place that is vital to local and national identity.
"The character of a landscape helps define the self-image of the people who inhabit it and a sense of place that differentiates one region from other regions. It is the dynamic backdrop to people's lives. Landscape can be as varied as farmland, a landscape park or wilderness. The Earth has a vast range of landscapes, including the icy landscapes of polar regions, mountainous landscapes, vast arid desert landscapes, islands, and coastal landscapes, densely forested or wooded landscapes including past boreal forests and tropical rainforests, and agricultural landscapes of temperate and tropical regions. The activity of modifying the visible features of an area of land is referred to as landscaping".
The Album is sorted by year and then chronology either by the newest date for a photo or the oldest date first. Play with the controls to the left. The navigation structure is easy to understand and use which is why I picked this particular skin/theme to portray my photography.
What you see below are thumbnails. In the upper left corner you can select music while you view. Click on a thumbnail and a much larger image will appear for the single images or for the years, multiple images will appear in more thumbnails. Click on any thumbnail you like and a bigger image will come into view. From there you can select a slide show (upper left and lower left corner) or click on either side of the image to move forward (right side) or in reverse (left side). If you put your browser into full screen mode, the image will expand accordingly. The music will continue without interruption.
