I love to be out and about in the early morning hours, camera in hand, photo jacket pockets filled with
lenses and filters, tripod slung across my back. The anticipation of finding that special shot, an unusual or beautiful picture, gives rise to excitement as I start out on my hike or "hunt" as a friend describes my photo shoots.

Don't ever start on your hike without a plan. A plan consists of what time you are going to start, what
