New Zealand

Sunset, Lake Wakatipu from Bennett's Bluff, Queenstown, New ZealandNew Zealand is probably the number one destination in the world for landscape photography. It is a place you never want to leave and every time I visit New Zealand I always look forward with much excitement in returning to capture the unbelievably inspiring views. The south island in particular is a landscape photographers dream.

From the beautiful lakes of Wakatipu, Wanaka, Te Anau, Hawea, Pukaki and Tekapo to the dramatic coastal location of Moeraki. From the mighty snow capped peaks of Mt Cook that stands dominantly at over 12,000ft to the stunning vistas of The Remarkables in Queenstown which featured in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, there is something for everyone.

Iceland

Aurora Borealis, Vestrahorn, Stokksnes, Hofn, IcelandIceland, known as the land of fire and ice, was sculpted by a combination of volcanic activity, the weather and of course the ocean. What makes Iceland so amazing is the contrast between the crystal clear icebergs and the black volcanic sand.

Iceland has so much more to offer than just the northern lights and no visit would be complete without experiencing the world famous Jökulsárlón beach.

Southern Iceland is known for its iconic viewpoints, but it is the fleeting moments of amazing light that define this island. Imagine a a herd of wild reindeer wandering across an icy barren wilderness, or a small red and white wooden church set against the backdrop of a huge mountain, these are the kind of scenes you will capture.

Dolomites

Rifugio Locatelli, Tre Cime di Laveredo, Dolomites, Italy, Melvin Nicholson Photograph The Dolomites are one of the finest places in Europe for the landscape photographer to visit. Located in Northern Italy, the Dolomites, or the ‘Pale Mountains’ due to the carbonate rock dolomite, is a mountain range of unspeakable beauty, so much so, they were declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009.

The jewel in the crown has to be the Tre Cime di Laverado, a stunning eleven or so towers that make up the group but it is the main three huge monoliths and their north faces that attract interest from hikers, climbers and of course photographers. Come and visit the Dolomites with me during the changing of the autumn colours and experience one of the finest places for landscape photography in Europe.

Lofoten

Aurora Borealis, Uttakleiv Beach, Lofoten, NorwayLofoten in Norway is widely considered to be one of the world’s top ten destinations for landscape photography. With the seven islands connected by small bridges, this archipelago provides so much variety for the landscape photographer with views so inspiring, that it will be difficult to know which direction to point your camera at.

From the rugged peaks of Lilandstinden and Olstinden that dominate the stunning coastal villages of Hamnoy and Reine to the iconic red rorbuer fisherman cabins by the water’s edge that line the coastline of western Loften.

Come and join me as we discover Lofoten during the peak of the season and the possibility of the northern lights putting on a show in the sky really is one of the best places to enjoy a few days of landscape photography.
