I was going through some of my pictures the other day when I found this one. It reminded me of Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog by Friedrich (which I posted for those who forgot which painting this is). There are striking similarities between my photo and this painting...puny human with back turned, gazing out at the mountainous landscape, reveling in the awesomeness of nature...(ok- you get the point. I'll stop). This picture really serves to reinforce how painters in the 1800s (especially Hudson River School painters) influenced modern photography.
