I don’t really mean to say that this is nature photography in the traditional sense. I don’t think getting a nature photograph is just a matter of climbing a mountain or thwacking through the jungle with a machete in order to escape people and civilization. That’s becoming more and more difficult to do these days anyways, and if I’m being honest a lot of these pictures benefit from selective framing that eliminates a road or a pile of trash or something. The human side of things is pretty much inescapable, so instead of trying to escape it, I’m just trying to focus elsewhere — to focus on things that are natural, to focus on the things that don’t really need us to exist.
