•LANDSCAPE & COUNTRYSIDE•
Back while living in Maryland, Scotch and I spent nearly every afternoon and evening roadtripping through the more rural areas and often ended up in Pennyslvania and West Virginia. We often didn't see any other people while out shooting, sometimes in tucked away areas that felt completely unexplored. My search for scenic spots and unobscured vantages led me to unmarked streams, long dirt roads leading to nowhere and unspoiled countryside. If you grow up in a major metropolitan city--like I did in Washington, DC--it's easy to forget that rural areas extend out past the main highways that essentially circle around the concentrated congestion. Once off those roads, it begins to feel like a completely different place. California has a completely different type of landscape with the Pacific Ocean replacing rivers and streams and canyons in place of cornfields.
