On the Bike Again . . .

Out on the bike again in Clarington.  The "big landscape"  is, most pros will say, the toughest image to work at because you need to create depth with a strong foreground "actor" or use light for the same effect.  A little light on the road helped do this here because a strong foreground element is lacking.

I like this a lot better as the flowers add some interest at the bottom and the eye is led across the scene by light and colour-  too bad it was taken late in the morning -the light is too "hot" - need to come back to this location early morning before the yellow has all gone.
Some drastic cropping can also "save" a big image to create a faux panorama effect: as the eye has to move laterally and the trees on the horizon give a sense distance and depth.
A true panorama ( a series of exposures "stitched" together) is better perhaps, like on this headstone:

Another panoramic-crop-for-effect on a fence -

Looking for patterns and interesting lighting is dangerous when biking on a busy road.

It has been quite surprising what interesting photo opportunities you can find within a couple of kilometers of your own home.  Freeman Patterson is validated!
