Square Landscapes

by Marsha February. 22, 2021 250 views

I’m drawn to photos cropped to a square format. As I photograph mostly landscapes these days this isn’t always an option, but occasionally it seems to work. Interestingly, as I’ve gone back through my archives of landscape shots, I’ve found a few that in tinkering around seem to be improved by cropping to squares. Here are a handful of recent and not so recent examples.

#5 This has a Japanese feel. Reminds me of Toshio Shibata.

That’s interesting. This is a small mountain lake near where I live - always a great place to catch a shot, especially earlier in the morning. Right now ice fisherman are having at it.

I really like the contrasting colors in #2 and #5 has great leading lines.

Gotta be hard to live here and then go way. Most of my family lives in Kansas...glad I’m here, at least for now!
