Breathtaking SUMMER LANDSCAPES – 19 Photos by Patrick Smith

The amazing photographer  PATRICK SMITH

Introduction by the photographer 

  • I have admired the landscape for my entire life.  I grew up studying the architectural hills and canyons of the San Francisco cityscape, and later the natural open spaces north of the Golden Gate in Marin County California.  Now I seek to witness everything that is splendid in the landscape and bring it back for all to see.  I will go to great lengths to be in the right place at the right time to capture nature’s finest moments.  I currently live in the San Francisco area and travel up and down the California coast and elsewhere looking for natural beauty that will inspire people to protect and save our precious natural landscape and seascape.

Artist’s Statement

  • Photography brings the world together in a way that nothing else does.  You can travel to nearly anywhere on Earth, and if you pull out some photos people will want to see them and talk about them.  I spend weeks or even years trying to be in a special place at the right time, and photography enables me to take everyone along to witness those events.  I hope that people will look at my images of these special places, talk about them, and work to preserve them for future generations.
