Over the past 6 months that I have been back in the states, I have been traveling a lot. I feel like I’m in a whirlwind of constantly going here and there. I have gotten to see some beautiful parts of the country from Texas to Nebraska to North Carolina and Tennessee.

One thing that I have learned about traveling like this is to always have your camera close by. You never know when something is going to come into your field of vision that you want to capture.

I have been spending a lot of time recently working with my camera and learning how to always be ready to take a picture and have it capture the true beauty of what I’m seeing. I spend time reading blogs and articles about photography and technique, but nothing can take the place of the need to just be out with your camera and taking pictures.

I shot this picture as I was driving with my fiance’s family from Nebraska down to Texas.
