Life from Above - The Fountains of Montjuic
An aerial image I captured of the Fountains of Montjuic in Barcelona. I focused on the beauty, the symmetry and the curiosity of scenes of every day life. An every day location that one may walk by and take for granted, it becomes remarkable when viewed from an alternate perspective. The vivid green of the fountains is framed by the greenery of the surrounding trees.
Author: Richard Vandegriend is a self-taught Vancouver based photographer whose passion is landscape, street and fine-art photography. Believing that composition and timing are critical to a great image, compositional elements are not altered in post-processing. Instead care and patience are exercised to ensure the image was captured perfectly in camera. As landscape photography is so dependent on lighting and weather conditions, more often than not, great images are discovered rather than planned. One must give themselves the time and opportunity to discover these images.
