Some landscapes just lend themselves to the abstract treatment. In fact, it’s almost impossible not to produce bold, graphic images. Deserts are a good example – vivid orange sand dunes against blue sky are irresistible. Rocky landscapes like the type you find in places such as Utah and Arizona are the same. Use a polariser to deepen the blue sky and saturate the colours in the landscape, and try to keep the composition nice and simple. Dark shadows can be a welcome addition, revealing texture in the landscape as well as enhancing the graphic feel of the scene.
