The Geometry Of Nature

ARCH_RebeccaLatson_Delicate Arch Lined 2

While I was in Stehekin, WA, happily photographing away from cell and internet services, my latest Photography In The National Parks article was published in the National Parks Traveler. This article deals with the geometry of nature and how many of you may photograph a scene without really realizing you are doing it because you see and like the natural geometry of a landscape.

Time Of Day And Weather Differences

I write a monthly “Photography In The National Parks” column for the National Parks Traveler. I try to gear the column for any type of photography, from smartphone to point-and-shoot to SLR. I will own up that quite a few of my tips involve things for SLRs, like Neutral Density and Polarizing filters, but for the most part, the tips and techniques I include are for any sort of photographer. One of the tips I emphasize in many of my articles for this column is to visit (re-visit) a favorite spot during different seasons, weather conditions, and times of the day. The images above, taken during an August stay at Camp Denali in Denali National Park & Preserve, were captured during the morning hours, but on different days and under different weather conditions. As you can see, they all look a little different, don’t they?

I’ve been a little more prolific than usual, with my writing, and the National Parks Traveler has published another Photography In The National Parks article for this month. This article deals with creating a theme from your national park photos. As you can see from the image above, a favorite theme of mine deals with leading lines made from trails I’ve hiked.
