    A quote from something I read this morning

    Couldn't help but share this. I think it's very well written and provides great perspective on the fascination many of us have with landscape photography. It's from Charlie Waite's "The Making of Landscape Photographs." Many thanks to him for having written it and for improving my day.


    "Often I have stood for a moment away from the details of camera and tripod and lenses and film, and seen suddenly and again [...] that the position we have on earth is, in its way, enormously privileged. The landscape is the thinnest of living veins in marble, squeezed between the giant masses of rock below and sky above. It is where the fluid and mobile element of atmosphere meets the solidity of earth. That meeting of those opposites is the great drama of the landscape."


    May your masses of rock and fluid skies meet just as you like them to,

    Leo

    I really really wish I'd said that
