Landscape Photographs

I believe some of my best photos are of landscapes. The content can be spectacular, but they really push one’s technical skills. You must pay attention to lighting, colors, framing, porportions and depth of focus or a great scene can look mediocre as a picture. Oh yeah, I also think they usually look best when they’re sharp all the way to infinity (so a tripod is a necessity).

I have lots more landscape photos to post, but here are a few so you can see what I’m talking about.

[button photo of Oracle corporate headquarters, Redwood Shores, CA] [button photo of the coast along Highway 1, southern part of Big Sur] [button photo of the beach along the seaside town of Port Orford, OR] [button photo of an unusually colorful sunset, taken from my back deck] [button night photo of New York City, as seen from my brother's apartment near Central Park]
Oracle’s headquarters in Redwood City, CA. One of the first pictures I took with the Coolpix. California coast, along Highway 1, on the southern part of Big Sur peninsula. The little Pacific Ocean town of Port Orford, OR has this nicely kept (and mostly deserted) beach. A most colorful, spectacular sunset, taken from the back deck of my house. July 4th, New York City nightscape, as seen from my brother’s old apartment on Central Park West.

What’s possible with a poor man’s digital wide-angle lens and a little graphics editing (3 pictures, spliced together). This is what you might see from Highway 35 in CA, looking out over Silicon Valley on a crispy, windy, smogless day. A peachy sunset on Sept. 1, 2003, south of Eureka (a quick exit off Hwy 101). My riding buddy, Pearci, also took several of this picture on film.

Some helpful hints to minimize download times and increase your viewing pleasure:

  1. Click on one of the thumbnail images (shown above). A new window should appear, containing only the full-size photo.
  2. Resize the new window to fit the full-size photo (fit is ok when you see no scroll bars).
  3. Move the full-size photo somewhere else on your computer’s screen (so you can see the thumbnails (this) page and the full-size photo page).
  4. Now, each time you click on a thumbnail, the full-size photo page will display the new photo.
  5. (You may need to adjust the new window size to fit the slightly different size images.)
  6. To flip through the large photos, use the browser’s back/forward/history controls at the top of the full-size photo page.
