Unlike other artistic mediums, photography relies just as heavily on the places, and people you can see as it relies on creativity and technique. It is certainly possible to capture beautiful, thought provoking photographs within the confines of your home, town, or country. However, travelling to different destinations can not only provide you with new, foreign subjects to capture, it can also spark a sense of creativity and passion that might be lacking in a place you are familiar with. That’s why BorrowFox has compiled a list of 8 locations to knock off of your photography bucket list. Hopefully this list will inspire you to get out of your comfort zone and take some great photos.
Bucket List Destinations
The countless waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, and geysers make Iceland feel like an otherworldly place. The geological features and sparse population make it a landscape photographer’s paradise.
The Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is one of the true natural wonders of the world. With a length of 277 miles, 18 miles wide, and over a mile deep, the canyon’s immensity is nearly impossible to imagine unless you actually go to see it. Forged over millions of years by the Colorado River, the canyon is truly breathtaking, and a nature photographer’s dream.
The Taj Mahal
The Taj Mahal is one of the most famous buildings in the world, and a brilliant example of Mughal architecture. Situated in the Indian city of Agra, the temple/mosoleum attracts millions of visitors (and photographers) every year who are in search of amazing architecture.
Niagara falls, which makes up one of the borders between the United States and Canada, is another must see, and must photograph, natural wonder of the world. Whether you are standing on land, or in one of the boats that sails next to the falls, there are plenty of photo opportunities by which you can capture the sheer power and immensity of the falls.
The city of Venice, which is situated over 118 small islands in Italy, is a must see city if you are interested in photography. The natural beauty, canals, and stunning architecture make it one of the most photogenic cities in the world.
Mt Fuji is the tallest mountain in Japan, and easily one of the most widely recognized features of the natural world. Fuji’s exceptionally symmetrical, often snow capped cone make it a frequent photographic site. The mountain has inspired countless artists of all types, and is sure to inspire your photographic eye.
San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the United States. The charming trolleys, natural scenery, and of course the magnificent Golden Gate bridge, make it a must visit photographic location to knock off your bucket list.
The Scottish Highlands
The Scottish Highlands is a stunningly beautiful and sparsely populated region of Northern Scotland. The natural beauty of the large area is nearly impossible to describe, but the region’s wealth of mountains, lakes, and quaint streams make it a nature photographer’s dream destination.
