My Research:
David Muench:

Wilson Arch, 1989

I love this landscape photograph. I think the arch is the subject matter and the frame of this image and this works quite well. I like the sunset in the background because the colours are dominant but don't overshadow the arch. The rolling clouds create interesting texture as well as the landscape itself, full of pine/trees and snow. The snow reflects the rich array of colours in the sky in a soft, subtle way. 

Also Mentioned: Ansel Adams

  • Famous for his landscapes
