Cotopaxi Volcano by Henri Leduc
Cotopaxi volcano north-northeast face on a cold and frosty early morning. Hoarfrost covers the grass of the riverside. The orange light of the rising sun in the background illuminates the volcano and the hilltops of the narrow valley that is still in shadow. (Cotopaxi National Park, Machachi, Ecuador)
Zandvoorter Vlakje by Rick Endstra
Zandvoorter Vlakje by Rick Endstra
Zandvoorter Vlakje is an amazing nature reserve filled with a peaceful forest with a lot of fallow deer wandering through the trees. The nature area is filled with winding trails dotted with photogenic views, especially if you are patient (and quiet) enough to wait for the deer to appear. (Bentveld, Netherlands)
Gardiner Expressway by Mind Fix and Chill
Gardiner Expressway by Mind Fix and Chill
This is one of the best views of Toronto’s CN Tower and Rogers Centre, framed in by the Gardiner Expressway. Head to the top floor of the parking garage located at 200 Queens Quay West and your imagination will do the rest! This shooting location is especially photogenic in the evening as the lights of Toronto come on. (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
Reynisdrangar Three Trolls by Bastien Junod
Reynisdrangar Three Trolls by Bastien Junod
This is the perfect location to shoot the Three Reynisdrangar Trolls. Legend has it that one night, three mischievous trolls, Skessudrangur, Laddrangur and Langhamar were pulling a ship onto shore. Apparently the task took longer than they anticipated and they lost track of time. When dawn came, they were instantly turned to stone. (Vik, Iceland)

Palendorp Petten-Photo by Rick Endstra
Palendorp Petten is a unique beachside artwork made up of 160 wooden poles ranging from 6m to 12m high. The poles are arranged to represent 10 houses and a church as a reminder of old Petten which was flooded by the sea several centuries ago. The artwork is especially photogenic during sunset and the changing tides. (Petten, Netherlands)

Factory Butte by JP Ramirez
Factory Butte by JP Ramirez
Factory Butte is an extraordinary piece of landscape that makes you feel like you are on a different planet. From its layers and textures this is easily one of the most unique landscape in Utah. Along Coal Mine Road is a great location to take in the imposing beauty of Factory Butte. This dirt road is fairly accessible, although an SUV or vehicle with high clearance is recommended, and has many incredible shooting views as you get closer and closer. ( Hanksville, Utah, USA)
Portland Head Light by Terry W Dunlap
Portland Head Light by Terry W Dunlap
The Portland Head Light is a historic lighthouse in Cape Elizabeth overlooking the rugged headland. Completed in 1791, and originally lit with 16 whale oil lamps, it is the oldest lighthouse in Maine. As a bonus since it sits at the entrance of the shipping channel into Portland Harbor this is also a perfect location to shoot some of the huge ships going in and out of the harbour. The lighthouse can be shot throughout the day but one of the best times is sunrise. The lighthouse is on the grounds
Lake Louise by Sayantan Basu
Lake Louise by Sayantan Basu
Lake Louise is a beautiful turquoise, glacier-fed lake ringed by high peaks and overlooked by a stately chateau. Shooting from the northeast side of the lake (and the west side of the Chateau Fairmont) you will give an amazing view of Lake Louise and it's natural blue waters. This side can get quite busy with tourists so you many need to arrive early or wait for a cold day to get a peaceful (people-free) view. (Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada)
