Grand mountains alone do not make for a great landscape photography destination. Dramatic peaks are merely a background and the foreground is just as important, if not more so. Patagonia is blessed with countless glaciers, which of course means that there are also glacial lakes, waterfalls and rivers, all flowing with icy turquoise water.

Lupine Covered Meadow - Lookout Mountain, North Cascades by @kirkendall_spring.
Lookout Mountain Lookout stands on a tower in a wildflower covered meadow (on photo:) near the summit of Lookout Mountain and commands a sweeping view over a broad swath of the North Cascades. The distance to the lookout and back again is 8.5 miles with a breathtaking 4500-foot elevation gain. This area is not as crowded as the easier to reach Hidden Lake Peaks or Cascade Pass.

From SNAPP guide to photographing Soča Valley, Slovenia: Livek.
Livek is a small idyllic settlement above the Soča river valley. It seems as if time has stopped there as you can still witness local children herding cows during their summer vacation. The views towards the Julian Alps are amazing - the closest peak is Mt Krn, the south edge of Triglav National Park.

Beehive Geyser, Yellowstone National Park by @lewiskemper.

Beehive Geyser over the years has been an unpredictable geyser. There are times in the past where its eruptions were days to weeks apart and times where intervals were 16-20 hours apart. Currently Beehive is erupting an average of twice a day. The eruptions are spectacular and can shoot a narrow plume 150-200 feet (45.7-61 m) into the air from its 4-foot (1.21 m) cone, lasting about 5 minutes.

Chestnut Avenue, Southern Moravia. Photo by @piotrskrzypiec9198.
Chestnut Avenue viewpoint is the most tricky spot to find, therefore expect to meet local photographers who know area pretty well. At the same time, it's one of the most iconic shots of southern Moravia. Here you can include in your frame the rolling fields along with the chestnut tree-lined avenue and two poplars at the bottom.

Sveti Stefan, Montenegro
One of the highlights of Montenegro is Sveti Stefan. The former fishing village situated on a peninsula became a hotel-town 60 years ago. According to tradition, a fortified village was built in the 15th century to defend against the Turks and became a haven for pirates of the Adriatic and initially housed 12 families. All of the buildings were acquired by the Yugoslav government and turned into an upscale hotel during the communist period.

From our guide to photographing Brighton, UK: 'With its Bohemian and hedonistic vibe, Brighton offers a friendly welcome to the visiting photographer. Discover incredible opportunities for people, street and reportage-style photography as well as English coastal scenes at their coolest. Add to this the rolling fields and quaint villages of the surrounding South Downs National Park and you’ll find you have extensive and varied opportunities for photography shoots to suit any length of visit to this most cherished corner of the UK.'

Natural Bridges, Oregon Coast. Photo by @gregvaughn.
Hint from our #SNAPP Guide to photographing Oregon Coast: On sunny days and in the afternoon, this is an extremely contrasty scene, while on cloudy and overcast days the light is rather boring. Best results here are shooting at dusk with sunset light reflected on clouds above.

Burrow Mump, Somerset, by @etunar.

Burrow Mump is a historic site with a ruined church on a hilltop. It overlooks the Somerset Levels which are often purposefully flooded during winter to divert rain waters, creating endless wetlands.

Sossusvlei, Namibia by @hougaard_malan.

One of the most photogenic landscapes on earth is situated on the West coast of Africa, where towering mountains meet the sands of the Namib Desert. Most know it as Sossusvlei or Deadvlei, but those are both just small clay pans in the greater Tsauchab Dune Valley, which is part of the Namib Naukluft National Park. The area within the park that is so famous is the valley that the Tsauchab River cut through the colossal dunes on its journey to the Atlantic.
