Without Our Help and Despite Our Presence
The focus is micro (at least relatively). Panoramas are nice, but a backpacker also has a micro level perspective of rock formations, animals and trees. More importantly, these are sights of things which are surviving without help from people and despite the presence of people. Tough to do in the modern world and hopefully it continues. They are usually eye-catching, sometimes strange, often pretty and always interesting (at least to me and maybe for you).
This is about water in the mountains that reflects its environs. From lakes to rivers to creeks to pools, there are often wonderful reflections when the water is calm.
