This week’s Lens -Artists challenge set by Amy is Landscapes. I have viewed some really stunning shots today, so I think I’m going to take a slightly different interpretation of this theme. Please excuse the quality at times as these were all taken in the 1990’s with film, and there has been some degradation in the meantime. They all are special scenes I remember vividly though so I wanted to share.
The first shots were taken atop the Island of Ithaca in Greece, where my brother and later my parents lived for a number of years. I had climbed with my brother up the side of the mountain, which opened out into a stunning contrast of white rock and typical Greek harsh greenery.
The next shots were taken in Southern India around a place called Hampi. The entire landscape was covered in piles of rounded rocks, obviously the result of an ocean long receded, but giving the impression that some species of giant people had arranged the rocks for their own amusement.
And finally a couple of shots taken in the UK a few years earlier. There had been severe flooding and the fields were submerged. It made for some great reflections, and in the first photo you can see Glastonbury Tor perched on the hillside.
I realise these do not have the grandiose splendour of a lot of blogs in this challenge, but I feel each have great merit in their individuality.
