As far the horizon goes :)

For best landscape locations. Stick with nature. Beach, field, rainforest, lake, etc. Preferably where you can see the sun setting in the horizon.

Well, Jersey's big, which part do you live in? :lol:

Plenty of lighthouses on the coast. I shot all of them last summer, except for Sandy Hook only because the peninsula was closed due to sever damage after hurricane Sandy. Twin Light, Barnegat, Sea Girt, Cape Map, A/C, all great places for landscapes. Seascapes always work. Plenty of horse farms, too.

Thanks, Cape May & A/C are on my list for next month. Any non-shore options?

I have been to Sandy Hook last month but forgot to carry my batteries that I charged with great enthusiasm the day before :confused::cry:

Del Water Gap is a beautiful place have done a day trip last fall but did not explore much. I would definitely visit Buttermilk water fall this time around.
