Photography is about exploration and a certain amount of curiosity. Walking gets you to places that you don't see from the car. Both locations above are proving samples. Only when walking the places I did notice the growing of trees in the areas. Living near the coast, we don't have many trees around here. The vertical lines of trees are a contrast to what i usually see. That kind of change in my visual routine is an interesting change.
If you are in the area consider a walk in to the woods.
