Funny story about native Indians versus the imports. Hopefully you are carrying the camera with you for photo ops and then you can pull off the hiway for that sunset/sunrise that is special.

It all boils down to taking the time to take the pictures.


Very good point. From now on, no more hurry - going to get the picture first. Ummm, just one thing though. I know most people get off the interstates and cruise the back roads for photo ops, but I dread doing any of that without a guide. Fortunately in or near the 4-corners area between Arizona and Utah et al, we had the relatives taking us to the various sites. Unfortunately, the contrast is severe there much of the time and I didn't have any filters, so most of what I shot looks sunburnt. There were a couple of websites at one time that listed various places around the world and a typical brightness and contrast index for daytime shooting. That might be a handy guide to have in a PDF.
