    Thanks for that Rick -- lots of excellent information there. The author writes that "scouting out locations is a big key to getting the best images possible" and it's so very true. It's a lot harder than it used to be, with fences, phone poles, billboards, vehicles and other impediments ruining compositions. If I can't find a pleasing composition, I won't take a picture.

    Safety. Oh yes.

    For me, it is very frequently difficult to simply find a place where one can pull off the roadway, get out of the vehicle and grab that photo. Other traffic roaring past, within inches..... :(
