Always have your camera in hand and ready to go (for me that’s always having the film loaded). You never know when you’re going to take a turn in the road that will drop your jaw and force you to stop for a photo.
Wake with the sun to get started early for beautiful morning light. The light is again magical from 4 p.m. to sundown.
Don’t be afraid to take a back road or stop in the town bar/cafe to meet the locals. Let yourself be surprised.
