Landscape photography shows spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscapes typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes.
Many landscape photographs show little or no human activity and are created in the pursuit of a pure, unsullied depiction of nature devoid of human influence, instead featuring subjects such as strongly defined landforms, weather, and ambient light. As with most forms of art, the definition of a landscape photograph is broad, and may include urban settings, industrial areas, and nature photography. It may sometimes be necessary to include the human element in a landscape image to depict the sheer size and proportion of the subject photographed, an example would be someone on a cliff edge overlooking the valley below.
