Transportative photography: Warmth of Place

There’s nothing special about this photograph, no amazing elements, no dramatic effects, no eye-popping subject but when I see this picture my eyes and my heart are drawn into it. The yellow bushes pop out and scream “warmth”. When I took this photo I had recently left the cold, damp northeast for a month in the southwest. What I noticed about the desert landscape is its ability to warm you to the core and melt all stresses trapped in the body.

Great Dunes wasn’t my favorite nor was there anything particularly remarkable about this photo but I can’t help but be drawn into its landscape.
