Note: This is a continuation of a 10-part series where I explore visual concepts that can help you while in the field. These concepts are not intended to be a how-to guide; rather, they are ways of helping one think about the visual craft of landscape photography.

Welcome to Part 6 of Exploring Visual Concepts. Flow as a concept is simply a means of allowing the viewer's eye to move through the frame. In Part 4 of this series, I discussed relationships between elements and the importance of allowing for pathways to move the eye through the scene. When I talk of flow, I relate more to the concept of visual movement, either through the careful placement of elements in our frame or by allowing for literal movement such as in this scene. To understand more on my thoughts, please read my latest blog post Exploring Visual Concepts - Flow.
