The beautiful, volcanic colors of Haleakalā, Maui…
The Daily Post’s weekly challenge asked for a landscape shot. Which made me think, aren’t most of my shots landscapes? Somehow, when I hear “landscape photography”, I tend to think of views from a hike with forest and mountains. But is a beach photo a landscape photo? I’m playing it safe and posting some pictures of a moonlike landscape from the top of a volcano!
I was going to crop and reframe this second photo so that the plant is on the very right edge, but then I decided I actually liked it this way, with the plant almost in the middle. Throwing out all composition rules. Not that I ever think of those rules when photographing, I just take pictures how I see them. Photography is art, and art has no rules.
If you’re ever in Maui, Haleakalā is worth a visit. Don’t forget to bring your camera!
