1. All the visible features of an area of land, often considered in terms of their aesthetic appeal.
I'm not satisfied with these definitions/understandings of Landscape - maybe I'm seeing something else- in these definitions the "landscape" doesn't seem to exist without someone to see it.
The definition of Land is reasonably straightforward, therefore it seems to be the understanding of "Scape" that is confusing. Scape seems to primarily refer to plant or insect anatomy or Escape. Eventually a reference can be found that is associated with aspect or view or picture.
So a landscape does not appear to be a physical thing- only a view of land - Processing that thought.
