Portraits of Landscapes :) Some Landscape Themes that Begged For a Portrait Treatment - Notre Dame Cathedral, Beautiful Fields in Belgium, Poppies, Pelicans and Central Park at Midnight - Enjoy :) John Brody Photography

cenic Field in Belgium - A June afternoon near the Belgium border with Luxembourg. The canola blossomed were at their peak after the rains. I came here to see/shoot some Roman Ruins, which I was actually standing on when I saw this beautiful scene. I get distracted easily :) JohnBrody.com / John Brody Photography

Seagulls in a Storm  -  There were endless formations of seagulls this day at Point Lobos near Carmel California. One after the other they zipped by, all seeming to have important places to be. I don't know if the storm was churning up food for them or what... A beautiful display. - John Brody Photography / JohnBrody.com

Flower Cluster by the Local Lake.   Trying a slightly different effect with this photo. Part of a field of flowers by the lake, I shot it at 1/3200th at f2.8 and more distance than usual with a macro lens. Just wanted the crispness in the front blossom and the slow fade of the background. -  John Brody Photography / John Brody

Portrait Version of Point Lobos - A beautiful scene on a stormy day at Point Lobos California. There were so many pelicans that day it was hard to get an image without them, which was fine with me :) The storm seem to make them come alive, probably churning up food sources - John Brody Photography / JohnBrody.com

Tulip Trail in Holland - A rainy day at Keukenhof Gardens near Amsterdam. The rain would stop for a few minutes now and then and I'd shoot the rain soaked flower rows and beautiful tree canopy. Miles of tulip trails, lakes and forest  - JohnBrody.com / John Brody Photography
