Landscape Photography: 30 Impressive Examples

Landscape photography is a genre anticipated to show special spaces within the world, sometimes vast and endless, but other times microscopic. Many landscape photographers show little or no human activity in their photography, striving to achieve pure, unsullied landscapes that are untouched by human influence, using instead subjects such as strongly defined landforms, weather conditions, and ambient light. Despite this, there is no pure or complete definition of what makes a landscape in photography, as such it has become very broad term, surrounding urban, industrial, macro and nature photography – Reference from Wikipedia.

Landscape Photography requires creativity, passion as well as perfect timing to capture some most amazing moments. I think photography is one of the best hobby as well as job in the world which fill you with satisfaction. Here I have collected some of the best examples landscape photography. If you are a photographer or love to catch your favorite moments then why not to share with us, drop comment with your favorite photograph.

This photo is taken at the top of the 83-meter-high Rock Fort—the only outcrop in the otherwise flat land of the city of Trichy in Tamil Nadu, India.

What a fantastic set of photographs. It's hard to say which ones I like best, but being Scottish, I must say I have a soft spot for the Scottish landscapes.

We Scots sometimes forget how beautiful our own landscape is.
