Photo Friday: Breaking the Landscape Rule

In the May issue of Popular Photography, there is an article about breaking 22 accepted rules of photography.  I have always believed art is about guidelines, not rules.  Let’s put it this way, once you learn the rules of photography,  you can make it your own by learning the right way to break those rules.  This is the same across all the arts.

I am going to start this line of blogs with the first rule on the list: Shoot scenic photographs horizontally.  That may be fine for some landscapes, but there are times when horizontal becomes a great way to destroy the shot.

Here, then, is my rule breaking shot.
