Landscape photography is a photographic genre that depicts portions of the world, no matter if the immortalized spaces are natural or urban. It's probably the more practiced photographic genre by professionals and amateurs. Instead of just talking about it, I’d find more interesting and instructive introducing you to some of its main exponents.
One of the pioneers of landscape photography and whom you can’t not know about is Ansel Adams, I suggest you to google him, while below you can find one of his most famous photos.
In addition to Ansel Adams there are so many of them to be named, so I’d suggest you to look at the pictures of Galen Rowell and Edward Weston.
