Famed black-and-white landscape photographer Ansel Adams did not like to take photographs that showed "the hand of man," that is, photographs that included man-made objects or objects arranged my man. He enjoyed taking "hand of god" photographs.
In my landscape photography and on my landscape photography workshops, I like to to take both types of pictures. "Hand of God" pictures can be awe-inspiring, while "hand of man" pictures can be fun. They can also tell a story.
How do you feel about "hand of man" vs. "hand of god" photographs? I'd like to hear your thoughts?
I took these images yesterday and today here in the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve in Colorado. I'm here working on an awesome new on-line educational landscape photography project. Shoot me an email to get on the info list . . . and stay tuned!
