Oregon Coast by @gregvaughn.
Oregon is blessed with a wealth of spectacular natural features, and the coast in particular offers the traveler and photographer plenty of opportunities for whatever time they have to spend. Oregon’s 363 miles of coastline includes a diverse landscape of beaches, sand dunes, rocky cliffs, forested headlands, hidden coves, sheltering bays, and river estuaries. Sea stacks, tide pools, wildlife, and lighthouses are also among the favored subjects for photography. Small cities and little towns are dots on a map connected by US Highway 101, the Pacific Coast Scenic Highway, which runs the length of the Oregon coast.

Selworthy Beacon Heather, Somerset, by @etunar.

Selworthy Beacon is located between Minehead and Porlock. It overlooks Bossington and Porlock. Every summer, the hills around Selworthy Beacon are covered in colorful heather flowers. Heathers bloom in late August and early September. A this time of year, the sun sets over the water. Views from this spot are still stunning all year around even without colourful flowers covering the hills.

West Pier, Brighton, UK, by Slawek Stazsczuk.

One of the city's most iconic and most photographed landmarks, a Victorian pier, now sadly reduced to ruins after a few fires in the past decades.

From our guide to photographing Sossusvlei, Namibia by @hougaard_malan: Dune 45.

This is the go-to dune and it is so named for being at the 45th kilometer along the road from Sesriem. Climbing it is considered a bucket list activity of the Sossusvlei experience. It has achieved an almost cult status in the park and virtually all photographers spend a sunset there when visiting Sossusvlei. Very few photographers seem to consider that the park chose that specific dune simply because it is the closest to the road and not for some special aesthetic appeal. It is coincidentally not a bad dune to photograph, but there are better ones to either side of it. Another big downside of this particular dune is that there are barriers and usually a few cars at the foot of it. This makes it impossible to shoot at longer than 300mm, which produces the amazing compressed perspective you need.

Walla Crag (sunset), Lake District National Park, UK. Photo by Phil Buckle.

Walla Crag is a reasonably low fell with panoramic views of Derwent Water and the surrounding fells. Towards the North West are Bassenthwaite Lake, Keswick and Skiddaw in the distance.

Lake Bled. View from the Bled Castle.
Perched on the top rock directly above the lake the Bled Castle is a must-see for everyone. From the top terrace there is a wonderful view of the lake and island.

Dolomites, Italy

Mam Tor Summit, Peak District National Park by James Grant.
Mam Tor, for most, is the pinnacle of photography locations in the Peak District. It boasts easy to access elevated views of the often mist-lined valleys bellow. The 517 m high hill is known locally as 'The Shivering Mountain.' Due to its rock composition of shale, it is very unstable and has frequent landslips.

Old Harbour View, Dubrovnik, Croatia

From this spot you will get the best views of Dubrovnik’s old harbour. Small fishing boats sheltered by the harbour make a great foreground and the most notable buildings of the city can be seen in the background - you can clearly make out Fort Sveti Ivan, the cathedral dome, the Arsenal building and clock tower.

The beautiful and diverse Olympic National Park lies at the center of the Olympic Peninsula and encompasses three very distinct ecosystems: the Pacific Coast, the temperate rain forests and the glacier clad peaks of the Olympic Mountains. In short, Olympic National Park is a photographer’s dream with the mountains to visit on sunny days, the coast to visit on partially cloudy days and the rain forest to explore when the sky is completely overcast. The one negative is the rain – temperate rain forests require a great deal of it, around 144 inches, (366 cm), annually.

From SNAPP guide to photographing Soča Valley, Slovenia: Možnica River.

Možnica (also known as Nemčlja) is one of the wildest and more remote alpine rivers in Slovenia. It has carved its way between two giants of the Julian Alps, Mt Jerebica and Mt Rombon. This is a wild area, very steep and forested terrain and you will need some experience to follow the trail and approach the river.

Now is the time to visit Southern Moravia (the ‘Tuscany of the North’), Czech Republic. If you'd like to find all the best photo-spots, be sure to check our SNAPP guide to photographing the area by @piotrskrzypiec9198. #justsayin' :) On photo: Kunkovice windmill, South Moravia.
