There are many places in the world where capturing their beauty in one single shot is near impossible. On the other hand, there are some places that just beg to be captured in one succinct snap. In fact, we’d argue that it’s pretty hard to get a bad photo of the following twelve places.
1. Quebec, Canada
Canada is known for its beautiful ice-tipped mountains surrounded by luscious green forests. However, its beautiful cityscapes are often forgotten about. Quebec offers the stunning scenery that Canada is known for along with a multi-layered cityscape.
2. Guilin, China
When people picture China, they often see the impressive Great Wall of China of the lantern-adorned city of Shanghai. However, if you explore a little further you’ll find the fairytale land of Guilin where not even fog can ruin the beauty of the mountains.
3. Odda, Norway
The beauty of Norway is often tremendously underrated by the world. However, when you realise it also has the incredible rocky sights of Preikestolen and Trolltunga, the reality sets in of just how much there is to see.
4. Potosi, Bolivia
Potosi is home to the largest salt flats in the world, known as Salar de Uyuni, not to mention the endless photo opportunities they come with. Mirror-photo junkies may get carried away with the unbelievable reflective surface of the salt flats.
5. Cape Town, South Africa
Whether you view Cape Town from the mountain tops or the city centre, the contrast between the land is magnificent. Photographers who like playing with light in their shots will find endless opportunities in this immense South African city.
6. Inle Lake, Myanmar
Myanmar is still in the early stages of developing its tourism market which means there are still many beautiful elements of tradition and history to see. In Inle Lake particularly, the untouched landscape makes any photo memorable but the day-to-day rituals and jobs of the people are what really makes the pictures.
7. Prague, Czech Republic
Prague appears time and time again on lists of beautiful, photogenic cities. Although we’d love to be controversial and disagree with everyone, we just couldnt bring ourselves to do it. Prague’s architecture is truly astounding and can’t be missed!
8. South Island Queenstown, New Zealand
If you are a fan of shots of places that show vast differences within its own landscape, New Zealand has endless options. South Island Queenstown offers a mountainous backdrop against the city at every angle.
9. Ubud, Bali
The beauty of Ubud is that it offers so many different photo opportunities. From modern city-life to chilled beach-life and flat country-side to hilly rice paddies, you’re bound to get more than a few good snaps.
10. New Orleans, USA
America has endless cities that offer awe-inspiring skyscrapers and horizons. However, New Orleans offers something a little different. For photographers that enjoy the smaller details, New Orleans is full of little surprises.
11. Havana, Cuba
Enter the time machine! If you fancy a splash of retro in your photos the Cuba is the place to be with roads-full of 50’s cars. Not to mention the splashes of colour that every street offers.
12. Hanoi, Vietnam
The folks at It’s Somewhere may be a little biased as we’re based in Hanoi. However, arguably the colourful markets, chaotic roads and endearing street life are enough to fill every frame with vibrancy.
