Landscape photography has taken me places I would have otherwise not visited. Allowed me to witness beautiful sunrises that I would have otherwise been in the land of nod for. Photographing the landscape has taken me down paths I would have never trodden (metaphorically speaking and literally). It has given me the freedom of the outdoors in all of its many different gueses. For me, photographing the landscape is as much about getting out there and absorbing the nature as it is the photography.
