This week Kim challenged us to view our world in a different way – so often when we take photos of scenery we tend to opt for a horizontal or landscape shot. However, if you use the vertical option (portrait) you get quite a different perspective.
Luxembourg is a beautiful country but in the summer it excels – serried ranks of vines climb the hillsides along the slopes bordering the river Moselle which forms a natural border between Luxembourg and Germany.
Spires of black mullein reach for the skies on this rocky, wooded outcrop
Up on the plateaus the sky seems to stretch into infinity and the landscape lies like a patchwork quilt before you with nothing but the song of the skylarks breaking the silence
and a river of blue cornflowers flows through a cornfield
And finally, sunsets, when you can capture the path of the setting sun on the sea, lend themselves particularly well to being shot vertically
