Whether searching for wildlife in the Amazon, capturing the long-standing Great Wall of China or on a safari in the Serengeti, the following beautiful places are destinations where photographers can take the perfect picture.
1. Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
Want to find a place filled with natural beauty at nearly every turn? YellowstoneNational park is a sanctuary for photographers across the globe. The best times to shoot at the park include pre-dawn, mid-morning and late evening until after-dark during any season.
2. Santorini, Greece
Santorini is the site of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in the world, which means photographers have the opportunity to capture multi-level buildings, walls, streets and squares that remain from the eruption. Additionally, photographers can capture the crisp whitewashed houses against the cobalt blues of the Aegean Sea.
3. Amazon Rainforest, Brazil and South America
Photographers can visit the Amazon during any time of the year, but a trip to the rainforest requires a lot of time and patience. It is important to be willing to wait for some of the rainforest’s unique and elusive animals to make their appearance, but as any photographer knows, capturing the perfect image is always worth the wait.
The sinking city with its historic buildings and canals is a photographer’s dream. October through March is peak photographer season, as the autumn and winter sometimes cover the city in fog. Photographer’s looking for images of the rich cultural events will find that the summer season has plenty to offer.
5. The Great Wall of China
The Great Wall of China was built to protect China from Mongol raiders. Nowadays, on a perfect day, photographers can capture the wall looking as if it is touching the cobalt blue skies above.
6. Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
Animal-loving photographers flock to the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador to capture wildlife on land and in the sea. Photographers can get up to six feet away from animals such iguanas, whales, fur seals and sea turtles. Since the islands sit right on the equator, sunrise and sunsets are quick, so research the sunrise and sunset times for good lighting.
7. The Serengeti in Tarzania, Africa
Looking for an even bigger adventure? Try a safari in the Serengeti in Tanzania, Africa. Leopards, cheetahs, giraffes, elephants, lions, foxes and so much more abound the plains as eagles and other raptors soar above in the trees.
8. The Australian Outback
A trip to the outback encompasses many different types of terrain, as there are a number of picture-perfect options for photographers. Just remember to protect your equipment from the Australian dust and also plan your trip on days when the temperatures aren’t dangerously high.
Whether capturing glaciers, the sea meeting the icy coast or the glacier-capped mountains, Antarctica has a photographic moment at almost every turn. Capture the blues in the ice under cloudy skies, or stay up for sunsets or sunrises to get the soft lights and colorful skies that are unlike those seen anywhere else in the world.
10. Swiss Alps, Switzerland
Photographers of all skill levels will marvel in the Swiss Alps’ landscapes and mountain panoramas. The Alps are also the most accessible mountains in the world, making it an easy trek for a great photo.
