The natural world has consistently provided artists, philosophers and the rest of us mere mortals with inspiration. From Claude Monet’s lilies to Ansel Adams’s monochrome prints, Mother Earth’s sheer presence captivates us on an elemental scale. Her beauty transcends the boundaries of age, background, gender and culture.
The proliferation of photography has allowed image makers to capture exquisite sites with the help of the lens. These images transport us to another place and time. There is a sense of luxury which is associated with these types of landscape imagery – the expanse of space, of detached calm, of peace are all traits that most of us long for in our daily grind. Brands therefore look to use landscape imagery to portray these emotively.
Waterfalls, glaciers, dunes, atolls, mountain ranges, beaches, volcanoes, forests, deserts and megacities – let yourself be taken on a fantastic journey with these landscapes from the Adobe Stock Collection. You can discover the full gallery here.
