My personal affinity has never been particularly geared toward landscapes (or seascapes). It has only been in the last year or so that I have turned my lens toward the subject, and when I do it is for the black and white landscape. This is largely because I think the appeal of black and white photography is especially emphasized in landscape photography. The black and white photograph when done well asks of the viewer that they consider details and tonality in the absence of color. It has always seemed to me to be a meditative consideration.
That being said, the next post may well be something in the same vein but a bit more colorful, and after that something of a photo-story.
All but one of the images shown are available as prints here.
