Often, I’m what you might call a roadside photographer.  As we get older it gets harder and harder to take the strenuous trails.  So, what is a photographer to do but take the easy/moderate trails or become a roadside photographer whether you are a novice or advance photographer or just taking pictures on the family vacation.  Do not let time of day or schedules on vacation discourage you. Many good-great pictures await you within 100 yards of your car.  If you can, plan your vacation day and get out there for the golden hours.  Experiment…don’t only use the “P” programming or “A” auto settings on your camera.  Underexpose by 1/2 or a full stop and see the difference in color saturation.  Just a few rambling thoughts for consideration. Enjoy your picture taking!
