Here are some of my favourite links to the Interweb:
Well, who is the most famous landscape photographer? http://www.anseladams.com/
Interesting perspectives on the subject http://www.thelightandtheland.com including a section on New Zealand here: http://www.thelightandtheland.com/pages ... nd_01.html
Essays, galleries, tutorials and locations (unfortunately no NZ) at http://luminous-landscape.com/
A series of articles by Galen Rowell on landscape photography: http://www.mountainlight.com/articles.html
For landscape plus wildlife look here (there is a button for english on this page!) http://www.fotonatura.nl

Would love to see you add others!

Nice Links Thomas!

Personally speaking, one of my favourite areas for landscape photography are the Canyons and national parks around SouthWest USA. There's also some fantastic hiking opportunities there too if you're into that kind of thing - Zion and Bryce Canyons really stand out and there's some photos in our Canon 5D gallery at:

http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Canon5D/page5.shtml

One of the best photographers of the SW USA area is Michael Fatali, who's website is here: http://www.fatali.com/

He's understandably discreet about some of his exact locations, but having hunted around the region, I can highly recommend Lower Antelope Canyon, just near to Lake Powell and Page in Utah. When the sunlight enters this narrow slot canyon, the colours and textures are simply awesome!

I'm not sure if Fatali was in Antelope Canyon for his shots, but his portfolio section lebelled Stone Cathederals gives you a good idea of what's there.

Here's one I did on a visit myself...

Yeah, I've already seen Fatali.
His "Stone Cathedral" is quite the opposite to Ansel Adams black and whites (at least color-wise) :D

Hi Tombomba....thanks for the warm welcome(sorry for the late reply though)

About the Zorro pics; This guy sure knows what he is doing. The composition works for me and the late afternoon light makes them even better.Its not easy to make a wideangle photo and keep the viewers interested....most wide-angle shots look empty without details....this is not the case here. I hope to see more photo's from this photographer soon.

This is one of my favourites. A lot of it is in the Gaelic but you'll figure it out. The galleries are pretty good.

Peter, thanks very much mate, I appreciate that. I'm no expert though, just lucky. And then only sometimes, lol.

The two most important things in photography?



1. Being there.



2. Having a camera with you.
