Recently, we took a trip to the Smoky Mountains and went hiking at a botanical gardens. It was different than any other garden I'd been too--it was just all natural greenery. I took tons of pics because even though I write in historical European settings a lot of the places I saw were bringing my own story ideas to life.
My advice--if you pass something in your daily travels that you think would be a great setting for your book, take a picture.
This reminded me of a road that my characters might ride on in a carriage or by horseback.
Perhaps a cave where characters might seek shelter from the rain.
Took this in the car, I just couldn't resist the rolling hills and water.
Doesn't this bridge bring all sorts of scenes to mind?
A babbling brook my character might stop to drink at.
