The Compressed Landscape

In the last year or so, I’ve found myself making the occasional odd photograph.  What I mean by odd is that they seem to have the air sucked out of them; they are pressed landscapes, flattened like a pretty flower in a heavy book.  It’s an optical illusion created in part by compositional design and focal length, of course.  But I like it because I can use my creative photographic toolkit to portray reality in an unusual way.  Gets one thinking!
