Capturing emotions in scenic photographs

Clyde Butcher, an outstanding Florida photographer who works in large format black and white, has said, in effect, that a landscape photograph needs to capture an emotion as well as present the visual scene.

This image, caught as a random snap rather than more thought out scene, seems to evoke the sense of light chasing away the darkness which must be a primitive human emotion.  I posted it to my minimalism gallery, but I’m still thinking about its categorization.
