I went down to the beach at Vero Beach Florida. Went camera happy! After that I went over to St. Sebastian State Park. Took some shoots their and walked around and enjoyed the park. It is about enjoying the things of nature that God has given us to enjoy and manage.

I'm currently Exploring Florida as I write this up on at a Starbucks in Jacksonville Florida. I have gone exploring in some dense fog in Bald Point State Park, Florida. It is a nice small state park. Sure it was foggy but I enjoyed the nice comforts of a morning that was completely quite with the sounds of nature. Later in the afternoon, I went over to Fort Clinch State Park. Which has, Fort Clinch and beaches and trails for one to explore. I even capture a deer eating the grass and scrubs of the forest.

Scouting as a landscape photographer is one of the things, that I often do and it is necessary in order to continue to bring better and better shots. One has to look and image what type of shot one is looking for. I was looking for a hill type of shot that I can do either a sunrise or sunset. If possible I would want to do an area that i can possibly do both. If there is an area that is well known like a state or national park, one can just get that location and fine some places to shoot. If it is a state or national park, one can just go to that area and shoot without dropping a pin on their maps. If it is a big enough State or National Park, one could still drop a pin so that one can go to that location again. You might want to keep your locations private and not make it public so that people won't flock to that location because the last thing a photographer wants to do is give away that location and have that location get ruined by other photographers. A particular landscape photographer, that I follow on YouTube, has that policy, in order to protect the integrity of that special area and the respect the locals.
I went to a location out in the country north of St. Cloud, MN. And took some photos. I really enjoy the aspect of going out and taking my time to do landscape photography. I did take some fun photos as well like some of these that are below.

This was my first attempt in getting a decent shoot at a good sunrise. I was hoping for a better shot but considering that I was doing this on the fly and just getting off of work (I work overnights). I figure, since the weather is decent enough for a possibility of a good sunrise, I figure I would.
