I’ve put this one up for debate. I love the conversation that has developed from John’s questions. I came over the brow of the hill the other day, and screeched to a halt. There was everything in this photograph that screamed Maniototo to me. No edit, straight up on Facebook. And then I looked again and recognised Grahame Sydney loudly in the influence. This wasn’t conscious at the time of capture, and I honestly don’t know whether it was there at all or not.
Ferg suggested he doesn’t have copyright on the landscape, which I accept. How much are we influenced by other’s rendition of the landscape, or is this really how we see?
