    Top 10 Destinations for Landscape Photography

    If you want great landscape shots, you must choose the best locations and make the most of the naturallighting; and while you may get some good scenes wherever you happen to be, the best photos happen

    when you go in search of the perfect location. If youre hoping to click some breathtaking landscape

    photographs, here are the top ten destinations in my opinion which will help you achieve your goal:

    1. Peru

    Think Peru and youre immediately reminded of the Incas and that great ancient city of Machu Picchu.

    This country is a photographers delight with its great sand dunes, tall, snow-capped mountains, and

    plateaus that showcase a bygone civilizations legacy. While getting to some of the remote locations may

    take a few days of air and road travel, the result is worth the effort.

    2. New Zealand

    Almost under the globe, this tiny nation is chock full of rivers, glaciers, fiords, mountains, geysers,

    beaches and islands that are a feast for the camera. Most of the country is uninhabited and so free of

    pollution and interference from mankind. Not for nothing has New Zealand been called as a landscape

    photographers dream come true. Its at the other end of the world if you live in the USA, but once you get

    there, this beautiful country will win you over with its natural beauty.

    6. The Netherlands

    Much of this small European nation is land reclaimed from the sea; it is a country rich in dykes, canals,

    national parks, lakes, woods, dunes and heaths. Amsterdam is a sight for sore eyes with its picturesque

    canals that wind around the city, often replacing roads and bordering houses. A photographer could

    wander about on a boat or a bicycle snapping great pictures of the surrounding landscape.

    9. Iceland

    Known colorfully as the land of fire and ice, Iceland is famous for its dramatic landscape dotted with

    volcanoes, glaciers and sheep pastures. The 24-hour sunlight in the summer makes for some great

    lighting, and with more than half the population in and around the capital city of Reykjavik, the rest of the

    country is far from regular tourist attractions and hence a photographers ideal shooting location forlandscape pictures.
