I’m what you might call a roadside photographer.  I’m almost 80 years old and frankly it’s getting harder and harder to take the trails for long walks.  So, what is a photographer to do but roadside picture taking whether you are an 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!
