I decided to head out today to take some photos on my lunch break and drove around until I found a spot that looked interesting. I pulled over to the side of the road and parked my car and put on my hazards and started shooting some landscapes, mostly trees like above. Right as I’m finishing up about twenty minutes after I got there some guy drives up in a truck and asks if he can help me. I told him I was just shooting some landscapes and taking off. He told me to watch out and I was left feeling like I should be a bit more choosy where I decide to pull over and take photos.

Anyone else run into this? Should I restrict my landscapes to only public property like state parks and such? Is there a good way to deal with upset people when taking photos? I don’t know if this is clear but I’m not much of a people person.
