Sand Point Pier

Tired Tim adds some incredible foreground interest with this shot of the Old Sand Point Pier. The use of the pier as a triangular form to create leading lines is genius. This a fantastic shot of this photo spot. The Old Sand Point Pier is where the ferry used to cross the Ottawa River from Norway Bay, QC to Sand Point in Braeside, ON. The ferry ceased operations in 1963. (Braeside, Ontario)

Polson Pier

We love the Nilesh’s juxtaposition between the hard shapes of the city skyline and the soft forms created a long exposure. Polson Pier has an amazing view over the surrounding bay and downtown’s skyline. This location is especially photogenic at night as the city’s lights come up. (Toronto, Ontario)

Ponte di Rialto

Lovely pastel hues make this popular photo spot that much better. This is the famed Rialto Bridge. The Rialto Bridge is an ornate 16th-century stone footbridge that is the oldest of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal. It’s especially fun to shoot if you are lucky enough to time the sun as it sets behind it. (Venice, Italy)

Tskere Village

Pictures of Adventures lives up to his nom de plume with this wonderful shot of a remote village in Georgia. The great photo spot is Tskere and is perched on a mountainous plateau at the end of the legendary “Khada Road”, an old winding military road that is difficult to access, but fun to shoot. (Tskere, Georgia)

Islandsberg Shoreline

Pär Ohlson shares another epic location with this great shot of Islandsberg Shoreline at sunset. Islandsberg Shoreline is a beautiful photography area with long rocks that have been smoothed by the weather and ocean waves over the years. You need to hike a couple of miles and the path becomes more and more treacherous, but the views when you reach the shoreline are stunning. (Lysekil S, Sweden)
