    If you could go anywhere (in the continental U.S.) to shoot, where would it be, any certain time of year and why would you pick that area?

    I ask, because my sister and I are thinking of taking a trip together to do some shooting together. (She is in Atlanta, I am in St. Louis)

    Thanks.

    Whatever blows your whistle. Personally, I enjoy landscapes and nature, then again, architecture is something I would like to learn. I just wondered what everyone's dream trip might be.

    I live in Alaska, and if you've never been here before, you will never be out of subjects to shoot.

    Whoops, just saw you said continental US. The Sierra Nevada mountains have always been one of my favorite places. Near Donner Pass, Lake Tahoe, etc. While you're there, go play Ansel Adams and visit Yosemite.

    I live in Missouri, this Willow Springs place you talk of is there some nice spots there? If so sound like a good one day get away, with some photo buddies.
    I would love to go back to Seattle, WA or back to the Grand Canyon. I was either to young or didn't care enough about photography to take those places for there full beauty, i would like a second try.

    My favorite subject is mostly wildlife, birds in particular. I would have to say southern Florida...down in the Everglades/Okeechobee area.

    Just get on the road and when you get to an intersection, flip a coin. If you have no preconceived ideas of what you want to shoot and you keep your eyes open, you will find subject matter everywhere.
