There were so many beautiful moments along the road, driving for hours with only the miles ahead before reaching my destination. For those of you who may have concerns, I’m very careful when using the camera while driving and never take pictures if it is unsafe.

Don’t try this. I’m a professional. Take pictures while driving at your own risk, don’t endanger anyone else…and make sure you get great pictures.
