Enitre nightlife is organized in the vicinity of the city beach. It truly reminds Miami Beach and due this resemblance Tel Aviv is called “Miami of Mediterrenean Sea”. City beach in Tel Aviv spreads from Old Jaffa, which is historical center of culture and must-see place in Israel, to old shipyard – the where was the first inhabitants of Tel Aviv established the city in the beginning-to-mid 20th century. Walking down to city beach you’ll experience local jazzmen bands, marvelous sunset, bauhaus architecture and fantastic Israeli food.
While travelling in Tuscany one must rent a car and go between Siena, Florence and Genoa off-highway. This way you will be exposed to beautiful vallyes, e.g. Val d’Orcia, meadows, cypress hills etc. Tuscany is a dreamland for landscape photographers and therefore I recommend them to take a tripod, wide angle lens and graduated-density filters.
Dead Sea is a an owe-inspiring, breathtaking place that looks totally out of this world. It is rather hot in Israel but for the Dead Sea phototrip you must take decent hiking shoes due to presence of many sharp-edged formations at the cost.
Santorini is a beautifull island with beaches of different sand colors (yellow, black, red and white). The most beatiful place to visit there is Oia (also called Ia) where people traditionally go for famous sunset.
Ushuaia is the southernmost continental place in the world. It is the usual departure point to Antarctica. In Ushuaia you may see many different types of flora and fauna and is the only place on Earth (besides Antarctica) where you can experience Southern Lights (Aurora australis). You can take there a trip to the local National Park in the end of the world and a boat trip from which you can see wales, seals and penguins.
El Chalten is famous for it’s renowned mountains, Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy. From photographers angle, I always recommend taking with you all the water-proof gear, e.g. raincoats and protection for your camera. Up in the mountains, in the base of Fitz Roy it is super-windy there and you can hardly stand, so I don’t think you can hold your tripod, which would be there an additional weight.
Jemaa El-Fnaa is the most magical place I have seen so far. Best moment to get there is just before the sunset and to stay long after it. To compensate bad lighting, take your tripod and fast lenses along. In Jemaa El-Fnaa you will see snake charmers, fire swallowers, all sorts of magicians and so on. Due to substantial crowd, I’d stick to one lens and camera always in my hand. It is a fantastic place for street photographers, so 23 – 35mm angles do the job there well.
Lisbon is one of the most beautiful European capitals with particularly hospitable inhabitants. I recommend taking a Portugese tram to get to the Old Town and have a romantic walk among fado singers, flamenco dancers. You might also want to sit in a barge-bar to listen to local jazzmen, have delicious seafood and Portuguese wine.
Jerusalem Old Town has a very special and unique climate which probably comes from the history of Jesus Christ. In terms of photography, there are many dark interiors, in most of which tripods are forbidden. Therefore I recommend taking high ISO capable camera, fast and stabilized lenses.
Iguazu Falls are an exceptional wonder of nature and a great adventurer’s experience. However, for photographers they are not particularly pleasent object due to heavy humidity and often showers. Nevertheless, you must take your camera with you.
