Landscape photography that conveys a “sense of place” always tell better stories. In fact, there is a big difference between capturing an image of a touristic spot and one that has a real sense of place. Anyone looking at this photo will say that it’s a photograph of Mount Cook in New Zealand. Yet, if you look objectively at the framing, Mount Cook occupies perhaps 5% of the overall imagine. Still, it’s such a strong element in the photo and it is so important for the essence of the place - it dominates the idea behind the photograph. If you want to create stronger images, look for elements that convey a “sense of place” in your photographs!

Great tip, and as always - beautiful photo! The hooker valley track is such an amazing walk, and I can't wait to share it with my kids in just a few weeks! Though there'll be less time for pure "landscape" photography, sharing it with the family ( and documenting it ) will be an adventure on it's own!

Interesting point mate. I've got some shots from Crater Lake that I can be subtle with to incorporate these ideas. Thank you for the share.
