Ferris Dunes

Wyoming - habitat for the rare and endangered Penstemon haydenii. The day was hot, dry, winding and it was mid-afternoon. Always a challenge in those conditions.

photography question:

when you shoot a landscape where the scene has slightly sloping hills and foreground, such as in this image, how do you determine the angle of the horizon?

My photographic eye has yet to develop a good judge for perspective.

Use the base of the large clouds for your horizontal line. If no clouds are available, use your imagination ;-). Actually, your memory of the scene plays into the equation as do the general growth direction of the plant stems. For this photo I used the shadow line of the large cloud on the right in combination with the other factors I just mentioned.
