A Subtle Landscape


I was photographing some Bison and after they wandered away, I began to look around a bit, while looking through a telephoto lens, and I saw this scene.  I am not sure what it was that caught my eye.  It is a very subtle landscape, but I was drawn to this composition.  It started with the tree, and then the deep reddish grasses in the foreground, and then the hint of red in the rocks in the distance.  I kept thinking it was not a great shot, but I kept being drawn to it.  So I will leave it up to all of you whether you think this is interesting.

It IS very interesting and actually looks more like a painting to me than a photograph. Love it!

For me, the scene is all about nature's beautiful color palette!

It's a beautiful scene with so much detail and pretty colors. It looks dry out there, though. Trace

Thank you all for confirming that maybe it is a half-decent picture.

Hi, Ken...Any photos of a Western landscape are interesting and very worthwhile! How could you NOT love these vistas, these colors and this sense of the wide open spaces?! You would have to have ice water in your veins! Another beautiful photo! Babs
