Shooting season for me in S. Fla. starts in November and goes thru April. That's a folk music performance season I shoot. Otherwise it's dodge the thunderstorms and drench yourself in DEET if you want to go outside in the summer. The last I actually shot a bunch of landscapes was in AZ two winters ago.
Years ago as in probably 10-12 years back I use to drive the Arizona state when visiting the parental units looking for pictures. A 200 mile trip was common and sometimes I'd stay overnight in Sedona with a friend and shoot for a few days there.
