Stowe

The house at Stowe has been a school since the 1920s. The surrounding grounds, the first commission of the eighteenth-century’s best-known landscaper, ‘Capability’ Brown, have been in the hands of the National Trust since 1990. With their lakes and follies, the gardens have plenty of calculatedly surprising views. Catherine the…

Upper Diabaig

The sun is setting behind the Isle of Skye (the hills in the distance). The loch in the foreground (Diabaigas Airde), was partly covered in ice, muting the reflected colours a little.

Mullaghmore Head

Ireland has many tourist attractions along the Atlantic coastline known as cliffs, the ones of Moher the most notorious to be named. Since I’m based in county Leitrim I can rather access the northwest ocean shore areas of county Sligo, Mayo or Donegal. The Mullaghmore head certainly belongs to one…

Lofoten Islands

The Lofoten Islands are a true hidden gem in northern Norway. The striking, angular mountains jut out of the Atlantic Ocean, rising to heights of over 1000m. The summit of Hermannsdalstinden (1029m) provides potentially the best vantage point in the entire Islands, with 360 degree views of ocean and mountains.…

Quetrupillan Volcano

I was travelling through the region with friends by bike, and with just a 6km hike up to the summit, the decision to climb it was a no-brainer. The…

Horse Shoe Bend, Million Dollar Highway

Million dollar highway considered one of the dangerous and narrow scenic bypass you could take in San Juan Mountains area. As I drove this area in the afternoon scouting for locations I found this area too interesting to not miss for sunset. I wanted to show how the road turns…

Istanbul

Sunset just outside of the old town in Istanbul with an old train station to the left and multiple mosques visible in the background as the sun sets. Scenic and peaceful in what can be a hectic city.

Deception Pass

Deception Pass is deep in Banff National Park, Alberta. Banff National Park is famous for its two popular lakes, Lake Louise and Moraine Lake. However, just opposite these tourist hotspots is a vast mountain region which is fairly unknown. Deception pass is 2485m high and offers dramatic high Rocky Mountain…

Crater Lake

Crater lake is a brilliantly unique location, with the island volcano providing an unmissable focal point for photos. It’s not hard to find an amazing location to photograph along the crater rim, although I found the best angle to be from south western corner, close to the volcanic cone protruding…
