While the ‘grande landscape‘ may be more satisfying to a general audience, I find myself more and more attracted to smaller scenes within the larger landscape. The definition of ‘intimate landscape’ is not firm, but I personally define it as those landscapes which exclude the horizon and any glimpse of the sky, down to scenes that end where traditional close-up and macro photography (which tend to isolate a single subject) begins. An intimate landscape is a scaled-down scenic with several elements composed to be pleasing to the psyche. Read Tom Till’s article: The Forgotten Intimate Landscape for more on this nearer and dearer form of landscape photography.
