From the intersection of Maryland Ave and Washington Pl in Baltimore head south on Washington Pl go 5 blocks make a left, go 3 blocks make a right and go to the end. There you will find an excellent landscape! At least that's my opinion and is that not point!

Go to the Civil War Battlefields which are part of the NPS. Some REALLY beautiful scenics in and around Gettysburg, Antietam, Manassas, etc. etc.....

At this time of year, in that part of the country, it's best to do darkroom work.

Your inqury depends on how you define landscape! Anyway, I will try to point a couple of places that might quench your photographic thirst. Take I-66 West to Warrenton, VA. Get into route 211 heading South/West towards Washington,VA. The stretch between Warrenton and Sperryville has some of the most beautiful farmland and rolling hills in the area. You may want to head further West towards New Market and take I-81 south too. Also, Route 340 West to Shennandoah State Park will be another place you would enjoy.

Send me an e-mail, perhaps we could tag along one of these days when weather permits!

Agree with the above post, also check out the Monte Cello and Airlie areas. Don't forget Chad's backyard, there are a lot of beautiful farm-land-scapes in Frederick County, MD. If you plan to shot in DC with your LF gear, make sure to get a permit, especially around the mall area. Happy new year!

You might try the Chesapeake/Delaware Bay areas as well. Some great sunrises and sunsets over lighthouses, marsh reeds etc.: Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware; Kent Island area near the Bay Bridge. There are a number of wildlife refuges on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Deleware that are within a 3 hour drive: Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge north of Dover; Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuse between Rehoboth Beach and Dover.
