Sometimes it's fun just to get outside and shoot someone that won't make a funny face :)

Landscapes are fun just because it's me and nature and usually no one else around. Early in the morning or later in the evening, it's just my thoughts and my camera. I'm currently digging through my library of pictures finding landscapes from the last few years, and some recent ones.
