Within every photograph there is a story. There are very firm, strong story telling places.
Landscapes images themselves can be leading characters and when people appear in the photograph they can become the extra, supporting character.
The narrative of a photograph can leap out and speak volumes as many of the Ansel Adams great landscapes, particularly " Moonrise" - Hernandez , New Mexico comes to mind.
Robert Adams another great landscape photographer shows us stoic social commentary places throughout his Colorado.
Or take in the setting of a quite bus shelter. It can stare you down with its questionable utilitarian beauty.
Almost as an annoyance.
