Cypress Mountain Viewpoint

This is one of the best locations to get beautiful panoramic views of Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. On a clear day, you can see across Georgia Straight to Vancouver Island and southeast to Mount Baker in Washington State. The best time for photography here is at sunrise and sunset....

Upper and Lower Rines Lakes

Upper and Lower Rines Lakes are oxbow lakes formed from meandering channels of the Pascagoula River. Beautiful bald cypress and water gum trees, dripping with Spanish moss, surround the lakes. For landscape photos the best time to visit is in the fall, when the cypress needles change from green to...

Audubon Bird Sanctuary, Dauphine Island

Dauphine Island is one of the best birding locations in the southern US. The island has several bird sanctuaries, but at 164 acres, the Audubon Bird Sanctuary is the largest. From April to early May, thousands of Neotropical birds make this their first stop after flying 600 miles across the...

Pont des Arts

Pont des Arts provides a great view upstream the river Seine on the island Ile de la Cité and the famous bridge Pont Neuf. The small island is worth visiting, not in the least to take a close look at the magnificent Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris. But also the small alleys...

Scripps Pier

The Scripps Pier is photographers' favorite in San Diego at sunset. The beach crowds have left and there is ample, free parking on the road with a short walk down to the beach.  Sunsets can be random, though. My unique approach - and old surveyor's aluminum tripod with a thread...

Steamboat Springs Wagon Stay

I discovered this gem of a spot outside of Steamboat Springs through an online booking for BnB places just for a day night away from kids. Luckily I came with all my gear. Not only can you stay in this restored Sheepherder's Wagon on the property, but you can photograph it...

Smithsonian National Zoological Park

One of the best things about Washington D.C is countless number of public attractions. A day trip to the zoo is a must, especially if you have a soft corner for giant pandas. They are quite shy animals so you will have to be quite patient to catch a glimpse of...

Kurumba Island

Idyllic sea beaches, lazy waves, guppies swimming around you in the sea and beautiful blue skies above. It is the perfect place to disconnect and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday. One can get lost and spend hours with just a book and a hammock.  Even the...

Jabal Al Jais

Endless snaking roads and hairpin turns await the avid driver on this mountain peak. It is the highest peak in the United Arab Emirates at 1900m. There are routine stops along the way with rest stops. The views are humbling from so high and one has to be careful as...

Luray Caverns

The lines and wait times to enter the Luray Caverns can be quite long but once you are in the caverns you realize that it is worth the wait. The caverns are the deepest in Eastern America and you get humbled by the massive formation of stalactites and stalagmites. Spot...
