Another Muriwai seascape
All right, so here’s another seascape from Muriwai on the west coast of the North Island on February 7th. Ten days later, on the west coast of the South Island, I found myself in the company of some French visitors who had come off a tour bus, and at one point I heard a woman who was taking pictures say to her friend that she doesn’t like vertical landscapes. I briefly interjected myself into the conversation and said that for me it amounts to the same thing. I’ll grant that for technical reasons (particularly depth of field) it’s often easier to get a good horizontal landscape, and our minds may be predisposed to like panoramas, but all the more reason for striving to give vertical landscapes their due. Okay, landscape photographers (and viewers), you’ve got your topic, so chime in if you’re of a mind to.
