Today we'll look at paths and trails and ways of getting somewhere in the landscape. Dorothy had her "yellow brick road" to follow, others a "road less traveled" but there probably isn't one of us off-roaders who haven't said "I wonder where that road goes?"
My guess is that I'm not the only one on the trails who, when confronted with a fork in the road, feels compelled to find out where it goes – or, at least set a waypoint so we can see where it is on Google Earth!
Photography of Paths and Trails
When looking at landscape photographs one usually looks at the "wide angle" view as opposed to the focused view of an object. These photographs have melded both aspects: an attention grabbing object in a grand view. Stairwells, pathways, roads, handholds – wet, dark, stone, paved, green, well lit – all good! And, sometimes, it's the barely noticed details which make a photograph draw you in.
