We call this view 'Rovinj Classic View' and we simply - love it! . If you are heading to Croatia you can find this spot in the (free!) guide 'Alps to Adriatic highlights' or you can check the amazing (full) guide to photographing Istria. #hint

Boat Tours in Bruges, Belgium by @andymcphoto / @phototourbrugge.
The water canals that run through Bruges were once the bloodlines of the city, fueling trade in the glory days and a visual delight to complement its shipping legacy since. With the growth of tourism after WW2 the sight of tour boat operators became common and they’re once again flowing with regular activity for all.

Lagangarbh Cottage, Glencoe, Scotland. Photo by @r0binkphotography.

Lagangarbh Cottage offers the perfect scene for a landscape photographer. Located at the foot of Buachaille Etive Mor and with the river next to it, it is a beautiful place to work with. It’s quite a busy spot, especially at the bridge and along the river.

Palm Island East - Burj Al Arab view, Dubai. Photo by @marekkijevskyphotography.

Palm Jumeirah is the world’s largest man-made island and is comprised of a two kilometre long trunk with a surrounding crescent. This spot offers just one viewpoint; the amazing skyscrapers Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab next to each other and reflected in the water. Use a zoom or telephoto lens for best results.

From our guide to photographing Bulgaria by Dancho Hristov; Ahtopol lighthouse. The lighthouse is about 5m high and was built in 1932 on a rock in the northern part of the harbour.

Venice, Italy
As you know, we're all about sharing the best locations with photographers, so we love it when you share your favourite spots with us! Thank you @jonreid for tagging #snappguides! Great photo!

Dubrovnik is one of the best places in the world to photograph. It’s no coincidence that this beautiful medieval walled town was selected as the perfect setting for the filming of Game of Thrones or as the backdrop for many other films and commercials. The Old Town is an incredible subject for a photographer, both for its stunning cityscapes as well as its maze of intimate, historic streets offering inspiring architectural details and street scenes. Add to this an incredible setting on the Adriatic coast, with wonderful sunsets, stormy clouds and winds and great photos are pretty much guaranteed!

Cerro Torre Reflection, Patagonia by @hougaard_malan.
These pools are fantastic for reflection shots of the iconic peaks with some foliage in the frame. It offers something different to the stone and ice foreground of Lago Torre.
There is also fantastic autumn foliage all the way along this route that can be composed with the mountains in the background.

The Cow and Calf, Ilkley Moor, Yorkshire Dales National Park by @matrobinsonphoto.

Ilkley Moor is a location made famous by the folk song 'On Ilkla Moor Baht 'at', and it's no wonder that it inspired such a well known (locally, at least) piece of music as it has something for everyone. Located close to Leeds, it's a popular destination for the people of West Yorkshire and gives you views, interesting rocks and even waterfalls on the wetter days. Ilkley itself is a lovely town too, with a number of pubs and cafes and, of interest to some, a branch of Bettys Cafe Tea Rooms.

Sastavci Waterfall, Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia.

The best time to photograph Sastavci is in spring when there is plenty of water. In summer the right side of the waterfalls is dry. It is also good after heavier rains. Autumn can be beautiful when in full colour, especially if you are lucky and it rains enough to cause a strong flow of water.

From SNAPP guide to photographing Rocky Mountain National Park by @erikstensland: Kawuneeche Valley Overlook.
The view from here overlooks a portion of the Kawuneeche Valley which comes from the Arapahoe word for coyote. The Colorado River winds its way through this valley as it begins its incredible journey southward. In the distance can be seen Mount Baker and Mount Stratus keeping watch over the valley.

From our guide to photographing Brighton & South Downs, UK: South Downs National Park near Saltdean by Slawek Stazsczuk.
