Nävekärr Shoreline

We love this dramatic shot of the Nävekärr Shoreline. This rugged coastline can be found along the outer edge of the Härnäset peninsula and is not an easy place to get to and photograph. But, Pär shows us that the trip is well worth it. For the adventurous photographer, the Näverkärr nature reserve is clearly a beautiful area to explore and shoot. (Lysekil N, Sweden)

Hiroshima Grove

Julian shares this stunning shot of Hiroshima Grove. Hiroshima Grove was created as part of the town partnership between Hanover and Hiroshima. The park features a memorial with 110 cherry trees to commemorate the 110,000 Japanese who died in Hiroshima during the atomic bombing on August 6, 1945. This area is filled with scenic trails and many opportunities for nature photography.  We love the lighting, processing, and everything else about this amazing shot. (Hanover, Germany)

Middle Falls

Waterfall+ND Filter+Long exposure = Epic silky smooth waterfall photos. Kim shares this great long exposure shot of Middle Falls in New York this week. Middle Falls is a large cascading waterfall with a 100ft drop over a steep rock wall along the Genesee River. Theses falls are the middle of a series of three steep waterfalls along the river. Three different waterfalls, miles of scenic hiking trails make the Letchworth State Park a real shooting gem. (Letchworth State Park, New York, USA)

David Gareja Monastery Road

Aymeric (a.k.a. Pictures of Adventures) always takes us to some incredible far-flung fantastic photo locales. This week is no exception with the stunning vanishing point shot of David Gareja Monastery Road. From this great photo spot, you will find this superb view looking out over the desert rift.

South West Coast Path View

Landscape photography is so often about scale. Adding a person can create a sense of majesty in a photo, and Steve demonstrates this principle beautifully in this shot. This location has a stunning view east over the Cornish coastline from the Southwest coast path. As a bonus, the Trewavas Mine is also in this area and is an amazing shooting location too.

Sunset Cliffs

We admit we’re fascinated by photos of bioluminescence. When we started shooting taking photos of this natural phenomenon was largely impossible due to the limitations of the film we started with (grainy images don’t make great photos). So, needless to say, we are fascinated by JP’s photos this week. When all this blows over, maybe we can go to California and ask JP to take us on a bioluminescence shoot. But enough about us here’s more about the photo location. The Sunset Cliffs is a rocky section of coastline looking out over the Pacific Ocean that has incredible sunset colours. As a bonus randomly over the years bioluminescence occurs along this strip of coastline. (San Diego, California)

Polson Pier

When it comes to postcard pics of Toronto, Polson Pier can’t be beaten. A great spot to catch the sun setting behind the Canadian City with the harbour waters creating reflective magic in the foreground. Sayantan shares a great shot of this iconic shooting location this week. We love the wispy smoke and pastel tones of this shot. (Toronto, Ontario)
