Typically, I can't stand people in a nature shot, but you add them in, perfectly, so that they're not obstructing or detracting from the feeling of the location~

Thank you! I appreciate you saying so, as it's sometimes a struggle to decide if and where to place a person in a shot. Will it bring something more to the shot or ruin it?!
I'm glad you think i made the right choice in this one! =D

Views like these, can have an accent added, by including a person. More than one person, and there's suddenly a story to the location. More than two, and its crowded and no longer about the scenery!

I like the way you include people in your landscapes.

I'm glad you say so!

There are plenty of shots from my visit to Iceland without me or one of my friends in it, and shots just like this one without me in it, but I thought this added more to the shot than it took away from it.
You can see the path leading up to there, so traces of humans were already there, and the inclusion of a person shows the scale of the environment.

I would have liked to play more with the angle of the camera, but I was pretty restricted as the camera stood as far out on a one-way ledge as I could get it!
(My friends had to walk away as they couldnt stand seeing me out on the narrow ledge!=D)

I gained an immense respect for my mother's forbearance the first time I saw one of my sons in a somewhat dangerous perch where I would have felt perfectly comfortable.  There were lots of things she just decided not to watch.  I was the shrimp, but oh, could I climb and scramble about.

As I thought, the colors are beautiful. This has a different angle I prefer black and white, but this is good too. Here the green of nature stands out more, the other was a little closer and you can see the waterfall (just a little).

Yeh, this is a bit different compared to the first one in composition. Originally they are framed the same, though the B/W version is cropped.
I got plenty of these shots and I'm going through them right now, might find better ones from the same shoot!

It's a pretty pic but the bright orange stands out too much.
