We have every run into a friend or family member in a location you didn’t plan on meeting and say “It’s a small world?”. Well thats not really true. The world we live in is gigantic, but people just tend to live and visit the same destinations. In this post I’ll cover some of the best places in the world to photograph this world has to offer…if you can afford to get there.
I know, Iceland might not have been your first pick for a beautiful destination but it is. Seljalandsfoss are the most famous falls in Iceland and hold a fairly high world ranking as well. The glacier water flows down the river before it plunges over the falls to a nearly 200ft drop. The falls often display breathtaking rainbows through the mist in front of the large cave that sits right behind the cave.
Cliffs of Moher, Ireland
I know what you are thinking, another cold destination? And the answer is yes. Towering almost 400ft above the icy waters, the Cliffs of Moher. It’s no surprise that the cliffs host 20 different species of birds that can often be seeing diving for fish and nesting in the sides of the steep cliff sides. The grass on the top of the cliffs where you would be is as green as grass can possibly be. The only remaining structure on tip of the cliffs that survived the napoleonic wars is watch tower where more tourists congregate.
Great Barrier Reef, Australia
By far the most famous reef in the world for good reason, the Great Barrier Reef is the largest structure ever discovered that was made of living sea organisms. The reef plays host to so many different types of sea life from sea turtles, dolphins, whales and a huge species of smaller fish. This is on most scuba divers bucket list.
The obvious challenge here is actually getting to all these amazing destinations. No matter what your budget is everyone likes to get deals on travel but it can be difficult to know who to trust. Over the years I have found great advice from Nomadic Matt on how to get the best travel deals.
We all know that this list could go on and on forever. It’s important to remember in the midst of all the pain and suffering in the world that there are still natural wonders that man has not yet destroyed. For more great locations to photograph around the world check out the great video below.
