It is also blessed with some of Africa’s best wildlife attractions.
Yellowstone National Park, USA
Spread over two million acres, Yellowstone is a must visit for any nature photographer and has everything from hot springs and waterfalls to stunning wildlife such as elk and grizzly bears. There are countless places to take a great photograph, but none are more spectacular than the Midway Geyser with its collection of mammoth-sized springs. Autumn is the best time to visit for photographers.
Great Barrier Reef, Australia
One of the seven wonders of the natural world, the Great Barrier Reef is the only living thing to be visible from space and is composed of over 2,900 individual reefs stretching over 133,000 square miles, and is home to over 1,500 different species of fish.

The country’s most famous tourist destination, and formerly the world’s top travel destination, has some of the highest sea cliffs on the planet, reaching up 1,200 metres from the water. The glaciers, waterfalls and overhangs are best captures on a day when the sun is beating and the cloud is sparse.
Hong Kong, China
Modern city skylines make excellent pictures, and there are few better skylines than that of Hong Kong. At night, the mix and bright lights and vibrant colours make for stunning photographs which are further enhanced by capturing Victoria Harbour. Finding a spot on a pathway along Victoria Peak will provide with the best views and this brilliant region.
