Intimate Landscape Photography

Let's get intimate ...

I think I have said this already in another post of mine about Intimate Landscape Photography, but that was quite a while ago and maybe some of you didn't see that post:
The American photographer Eliot Porter might have created the term Intimate Landscape Photography. Eliot Porter had the first exhibit of colour photography at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1979 – an exhibit titled Intimate Landscapes.

In my opinion, an Intimate Landscape Photo is a part of a bigger landscape scene, showing smaller details, but different from close-up images or macros. It's somewhere between the grand vista landscape photo and a close-up or macro of a flower - it should show something and let the viewer be curious and think about the big picture. For more information you can also ask Google or your preferred search engine.

I love waterfalls, everybody knows that, but looking closer to the streams of water or the surrounding rocks and vegetation always surprises me by showing me details like interesting patterns or textures or colours as if a painter would have had some fun painting the rock faces.

I think this is the second Intimate "Waterfall" Photography post I have made ... I just love waterfalls and their loud and relaxing silence, what more can I say 😉

Sometimes whole rocks shine like gold or there are golden scratches in sometimes dark rocks, what makes them shine even more golden. In most of these cases the (morning) sun is the painter who paints in gold.

I don't want to tell you too much about these photos or where I have taken them. It's not important where I have taken the photos, but it is important that you look at them and imagine the rest of the photo which you cannot see. If you can do so, I have done my job as a photographer to the satisfaction.

Different lichens or the running rainwater paint the rocks in different colors.

The early morning sun conjures up golden streaks on the rocks over which the stream runs.

It doesn't always have to be the mighty waterfall or the big vista - small details in or on the waterfall or stream can be much more interesting. People usually don't see them at all, because I can often watch them standing by the waterfall, marvel at the mighty water, take a selfie and then walk on without having seen what I consider really beautiful things.

You might say now that some of the images are by no means Intimate Landscape Photos, I know, but in these you might see some of the details I have taken in the other photos, just as in the photo below.
