No form of photography illustrates this scripture better than that of landscape photography. Wikipedia defines landscape photography this way: "Landscape photography is intended to show different spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Photographs typically capture the presence of nature and are often free of man-made obstructions. Landscape photographers often attempt to document the space as well as convey an appreciation of the scenery." The sole intention of the landscape photographer to capture the beauty and power of the world surrounding us in a way that stirs up emotion in heart of the viewer.
