The Louvre

The Louvre is a very famous museum (home of La Joconde). Since 1989, a glass pyramid is in the middle of the building (designed by Pei). Highly debated when it was presented to the public, it is now a symbol of this museum. I think that at night is the…

Opéra Garnier

Paris is a wonderful city, but I think it is even better at night. Among all the monuments in Paris, one of my favorite is this one. During the day you can visit it and it is worth doing it (at least for the ceiling painted by Chagall). During the…

Fêtes des Lumières

This is a particular “photo spot” since it is more a “photo time”. Lyon organizes every year around December 8th the “light party”. All the city is illuminated by different artists and there are visual shows in building. If you are in France in December, it is definitely a wonderful…

Bisti Badlands

The Bisti Badlands is a stark location south and east of Farmington, NM and north and west of Albuquerque, NM. Best time of the day is late afternoon and early evening as the sun and shadows provide great opportunities for contrast in a desolate landscape. There is much to see…

Mission Peak

You’re going to want to be in moderate health to climb Mission Peak, as you will climb from either 300 ft. trailhead up to the 2500 ft. summit in about 3 miles; I’d set aside ~ 1.5-2 hours to make the top. I’m not an early morning person, so I…

Muir Woods

Muir Woods is fantastic year round – depending on the time of year, it can be damp and cool or warm and dry – rarely hot. Tripods are allowed and recommended due to the dim light when entering the canopy of tree’s. During sunset, you may catch god-rays splaying thru…

Pt. Reyes

Pt. Reyes has a collection of places to visit – you can go down to the beach and see stunning ocean colors banging off the ragged coast or travel to the Lighthouse and visit its history. Wildlife includes hawks, deer, sheep, big cats, Elk, seals, whales and sea lions.

Champagne Vineyards at Châtillon-sur-Marne

Châtillon-sur-Marne is a commune in the Marne department in north-eastern France. It lies in the valley of the Marne River, surrounded by the Parc Naturel de la Montagne de Reims. It lies in the historic province of Champagne. The picturesque village stands above sloping vineyards and fields.

South Point (Ka Lae)

Ka Lae is Hawaii’s most southern tip. It’s comprised of a long expanse of rocky cliffs that run deep into the ocean. The waters are so deep that many choose to jump from the cliffs into the ocean below. This spot is beautiful to photograph year-round as Hawaii’s weather is…

Toronto Aquarium

An amazing photo spot that is full of opportunities to show your stuff! Brilliantly arranged so you are literally “walking with the fishes”, you are surrounded by their environment – a visitor to their world, as captured in the featured image.
