I don't do landscapes

I don't do landscapes
Taking good landscape photos ought to be easy, at least if one lives in areas with the kind of landscapes common in the places I have lived; Norway, the US Pacific Northwest, Southern California, and many more.
Well, it isn't that easy. At least not to me. When going hiking, I take my camera in case a bird or a flower should show up. The landscape photos I take do not in any manner or fashion whatsoever do justice to the actual landscape.
Ansel Adams once said that "A good photograph is knowing where to stand." I guess it was easier in his days, before somebody put up signs with "STAY ON PATH!" all over?

lol.....I like your text :-))
if I may give you my opinion, I would make much less contrast.......is it an HDR or did you combine manually 2 images? would be interesting to see the original.......
