High Horizon

The high-lying horizon comes across as heavy. In spite of the vast landscape, the image build-up in this image comes across as considerably narrower and more compressed. The road running towards the horizon, however, disperses some of the image’s narrowness as the observers gaze is directed towards distance.

The photographs have a particularly effective depth of field when elements in the foreground and background are depicted as being small. In correlation with a low camera positioning, the depth of field in the following image is increased.
