For distant landscape scenes, I believe the instructions say to point the lens, with the Expodisc attached, at the actual distant scene you are shooting, as the entire distant scene is illuminated equally.

That will not work properly unless your scene is neutral. The scene is much more likely to color the light. For example, the light reflected back from a desert scene will be warm. The light reflected back from a lake scene will be cool.

However, I set the white balance for landscape scenes based on what I think looks best or what I remember seeing.
