Santorini

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.

Great Falls National Park (Virginia Side)

This is a very popular location for visitors from all over the world. Consequently, it is extremely crowded. On weekends, the wait to get into the parking lot may be an hour or so. If you must visit on a weekend, I think the best time to visit is around…

Ushuaia

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…

El Chalten

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…

Jemaa El-Fnaa

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…

Lisbon Old Town

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…

Jerusalem Old Town

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.

Fishing Bridge

We spend ages checking light and setting up or we hang around for hours waiting for “the light”, but this particular morning I set up my camera and tripod looked up and saw the image attached. I took two shots but the first one was the one. My camera is…

Gyeongbokgung

This palace is closed at night except for twice a year: once in the fall and once in the spring. Needless to say, it gets incredibly crowded. Good time to go is around 8:30 PM, 30 minutes before closing. By then many of the people have already come and gone.

Hapcheon Haeinsa

This temple houses the famed Tripitaka Koreana, which is a collection of Buddhist scripture carved onto 81,258 wooden printing blocks in the 13th century. It is the world’s oldest and most comprehensive surviving version of the Buddhist canon carved in Traditional Chinese. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
