I do a LOT of research before I head out on a Landscape Photography excursion.  

►I read ebooks from fellow travelers.  
►I watch YouTube Videos from my peers.  
►I use Goole Image Search.  
►I even reach out to friends and family to gather their "must-see" spots.  

But never did I EVER think I'd be scouting locations in VIRTUAL REALITY!  Using Google Earth VR and a cheap VR Headset I am able to leverage the graphics capability on my PC to see the world in a whole new way!  Before you judge me on this one, you HAVE  to see how accurate Google Earth VR is to the real thing!

You are in for a treat!
