Taking in Shenandoah Valley

While the viewer may not see what my friend is seeing, it's amazing how one can still sense that her view is impressive. Admittedly, I have an advantage since I was present and know what she saw. However, I intentionally positioned her in the composition surrounded by large rocks and the large tree in the background to help us imagine her view beyond the camera's reach. I like the idea that her panoramic view of the Shenandoah Valley is a mystery and we must use our imagination to fill in those blanks. At times, what the photograph does not reveal is more intriguing than what it does.
