Nice 'scape that has an almost abstract nature to it, kind of Gursky-ish.

Thank you for the kind comment, Minnie. I wish I could sell my work for what he does.

So much of Gursky's work is deliberately unreal. Bob's work is very, very, meticulously real. Reminds me more of St. Ansel. I often wonder what it is that makes a Gursky or (for that matter) an Ansel. Neither is/was THE photographer of his generation. There have been many great artists working in all media going back thousands of years. Some were undoubtedly famed in their time, others perhaps equally skilled were not, or at least not as much. What makes the difference?

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Thank you, Chuck, for the very nice compliment. I also enjoyed your ruminating a bit.

I'm drawn to this, but oddly for the barren foreground. Lovely! S-

St3v3, the desert is like that. The barren land can be quite interesting. Thanks for looking and commenting.

My dad and I took a day trip to the Mojave National Preserve. The desert has a beauty all it's own! S-

St3v3, that it does. I personally prefer more woods and water, but the desert can provide a great setting. Depending on the subject, the desert can guide one's sight to the subject, or be the subject itself. It's quite flexible.
