Epic Scenes

I’m still trying to get my head around what makes one scene more “epic” than the next.  What do you think?  I haven’t given it a ton of thought, but here are some things that seem to seperate an epic scene from another scene (which may also be interesting in its own great way):

  • A sense of scale – things close, far away, and a sense of the 3D depth of a vast playing field
  • A sense of timelessness – in which the photo could have been taken a long time ago — or recently — and it does not matter.
  • A feeling of the old movies – I’m not sure what I mean by this one… just the shape of a feeling, though…

Daily Photo – Yosemite Valley View

My first trip to Yosemite was so fun — I can’t believe it was only a few weeks ago!

I’ve been to Yellowstone about a dozen times, so it was strange never to have a trip to Yosemite under my belt.  Yellowstone is great and everything, but it lacks a few of these “epic” scenes, if you know what I mean.
