Breathtaking Landscapes

This is the first time I’ve featured a single photographer in one of my Friday Photoblogs. Will I do it again? Yes, if I find another photographer whose work I enjoy as much as that of Johannes Plenio! Johannes, who lives in Germany with his wife and three daughters, uses various techniques to, in his own words, “capture everything in God’s wonderful creation!”

    Thanks, Mitch. Almost recalls the Hudson River Painters in terms of mythological romanticism. Love it! Callan

  11. Thanks, Mitch, for your honest-to-God, sightseeing tour; allowing us to behold our home world’s splendors; akin to a pre-Earth Day ’22 reminder of what humankind stands to LOSE should climate change deniers “WIN”. I especially appreciate your lead photo’s, awe inspiring, starry, starry night. Alas, these days, such a view only comes courtesy of planetariums, coffee-table books and wonderful websites (such as yours).

      I still remember lying in a sleeping bag somewhere in the Great Plains (Dakotas, maybe) when I was a kid, and seeing more stars that I’d ever thought possible. Maybe we need a “Save the Stars” campaign.

      • I have similar fond memories, minus the sleeping bag; but, since I’d been stunned into temporary insomnia, anyway, everything all worked out.fine. To get your bright, “Save the Stars” idea off the drawing board, perhaps a cross promotion tapping into the drawing power of big name Hollywood stars?

  23. “A Study in Orange” photo with the sun made me tear up, it’s so beautiful. “A Study in Lavender” with the snow and the full moon just feels comforting. Whatever image enhancement is done, feels like a natural way to convey the energy of nature to people who can’t be in it right now. Thanks for posting this!
