The Daily Post, Landscape

For this week’s challenge, share a photo of a landscape: a wide establishing shot of a scene in nature or an urban setting. A simple theme you would think, but I don’t really do landscapes, I never feel that my lens is up to it. My entry is actually a phone shot, so doesn’t bear zooming in, but it’s quite pleasing nevertheless.

avon b and wYou can join in here, and see lots of really wonderful shots.

Perhaps mine is better in colour?

  1. Wow! They are both gorgeous Gilly! They look like paintings! Such a beautiful view. I really can’t decide which one is my favourite. If I could, I would hang them both. 😀 ♥

  2. Well, I always have to be different, but I think I like the black and white better. But they are both great photos, Gilly. And, actually, your header photo is a terrific landscape shot as well.

  3. The black and white looks rather bleak but the colour brings it alive and the touches of autumn colour gives it warmth and I love the composition.

  4. My vote is for the colour shot Gilly. Although I must add that the light reflected by the white building at the top of the scene makes a great contrast with the toning of the trees tumbling down the hill to the river.
    Make your weekend a great one Gilly, with lots of photos.

  5. No apology needed, Gilly. I use my iPhone all the time. Love my Nikon, but I have to carry it on purpose, where my phone is always with me. I like the color best, but the B&W gives an atmosphere that’s very different.


  6. a beautiful click, Gilly. and it looks great in either version, b&w or colour. just a different mood. the b&w seems to be more reflective and dreamy, and the colour one more welcoming. so it’s hard to choose a favourite between the two 🙂
    i too find most of my images are anything but landscapes! i found that after one of my first visits to Vancouver Island’s west coast, that most of my clicks were close-ups or macro’s. so after that, i was determined to include a few landscapes as well wherever i would go, but my favourite images in the archives still are those close-up shots.

I would love to hear from you . . .
