Why So Many People Love Landscape Photography

I wrote a blog post today (http://mattyk.me/RRSGDi) with some thoughts on the topic. Basically, have you ever heard about (or see) one of those popular landscape photography locations that’s absolutely packed with people? Ever wonder why everyone is standing there taking the same exact photo that maybe tens of hundreds of thousands of photographers have taken before? If you haven’t witnessed it personally, then you’ve probably seen it. And if you haven’t, then just check out the photo above taken at Delicate Arch in Arches National Park near Moab, Utah. Believe it or not, you’re not even seeing the other 50+ people that were to the right of me in that photo. So with crowds often like this, and so many photos looking similar to each other, why do so many people love landscape photography?

To me, I think it's the process of actually making a photo that people love (not just the photo itself). I wrote a little more about it on my blog today with a story of how it clicked with a friend of mine. Here's the link:
