How about California? Lots of beautiful scenics and an unbelievable variety of oppertunity at any time of the year. Oops! am I bragging, sorry, but it's a really nice state for photography. Here is a shot of Convict in the fall. It's in the Owens valley behind Yosemite Valley. It was taken with a Nikomat Ftn & 35mm Nikor lens.
