“I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn’t photograph them.”
— Diane Arbus

After a sweltering week, the fall chill is starting to creep into the morning air where I am in Quebec. That means it’s just a few more weeks for the fair weather photographers out there. It won’t be long until the leaves start to change and brilliant colours of fall take over. Until then, enjoy these shots of fantastic photo locations from the last few weeks of summer.

Naoshima Island - Naoshima, Japan

Our photo location of the week goes to new user Gonzalo Ruiz Calavera. Gonzalo shares this very cool pumpkin sculpture from Naoshima Island. Naoshima Island has been nicknamed “art island” where the whole island is a museum.  There are two giant pumpkins situated on the island, the Yellow Pumpkin on the Pier overlooking the ocean has become an icon of the island.  The second pumpkin is the Red Pumpkin and is located at the ferry terminal. Needless to say, we’re adding this to our bucket list!

Patkuli Viewing Platform - Tallin, Estonia

Bhotch returns with the Patkuli Viewing Platform – A spectacular spot to take in the cityscape overlooking Old Tallinn. The view is especially majestic at night. The stairs going up are quite steep but you can go around the long way through the cobbled streets of Tallinn to avoid the climbing.

Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site - Baddeck, Nova Scotia

Michel Bricteux shares a shot of the HD-4 hydrofoil in the museum at the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site. Designed for anti-submarine duty, it held the world’s marine speed record for several years. Alexander Graham Bell is best known as the inventor of the telephone. Lesser known is the fact that this genius spent much of his life working on various subjects ranging from aerodynamics (aircraft, hydrocopters) to inventions for the hearing impaired. He was a true Leonardo of the industrial age.

A busy week for me, but glad to get back to looking at the great photo locations being added to the PIXEO app. Reminds me to get off my butt and go shooting this weekend. I’ve been delinquent and my camera’s calling! Hope we’ll see you out there too 😉

Montreal, Canada

New user Michel Bricteux submitted a large number of locations this week, and it was hard to narrow it down to which ones should feature. We love this great shot of the fireworks in Montreal and think you’ll agree this is a spectacular shooting location for getting shots of Jacques-Cartier bridge.

Lavender Fields of Spain

Another one from Michel Bricteux, and how can you go wrong with fields of Lavender? Vibrant purple hues in staggered rows make this an enticing viewpoint. This region has an annual festival making it an excellent area for shooting the fragrant and colourful plant.

Abandoned Submarine Base

Bhotch shares one of the most interesting locations we’ve ever received. This epic viewpoint is of a long-abandoned Soviet-era submarine base is now a haven for graffiti artists and urban explorers. The Russian military built the station between 1956 and 1958 and used it until Estonian achieved independence in 1991.

Tyin Lake and Filefjell Mountains Viewpoint in Norway

Okay, we couldn’t resist just one more. Another one from Hege Benedicte. We love her shot of Tyin with the Filefjell mountain range in the background. It is hard to believe this beautiful viewpoint is a simple stop along the side of the E16. Roadtrip anyone?
