Land-scapes

When I re-organized my work into the galleries you see on this site I discovered some interesting things. As I mentioned earlier, I found that a disproportionate amount of my work fell into the Land-scape category (simply put a land-scape is an image in which land is the primary subject matter as opposed to sea, sky or something more specific in the land). I therefore had to create sub-divisions within the 'Land-scapes' gallery. Naturally, using the four seasons seemed to be the easiest answer because all digital images have the date taken as part of their EXIF data. Alas, this type of division brought me into a consideration of semantics. For example, what or when is 'Spring'? Is it when the trees start budding? Is there snow on the ground? On what dates does 'Spring' begin and end? As I grouped my images according to what time of year they were taken I was faced with the fact that none of my 'Spring' images have cherry blossoms in them; some 'Winter' images have no snow and some 'Spring' images have a lot of snow! Oh, and it may be 'Spring' in Denver but it is still 'Winter' up at higher elevations in the Rocky Mountains. What about the southern hemisphere? The seasons are reversed there. How about the tropics where there seem to be no seasons at all? It's all very complicated and disturbing. Therefore, I suggest to you the viewer that you simply look at the photographs for what they really are and don't get caught up in all of this.
