#10 – ALASKA
This amazing photo was taken in Chugach State Park, which is located in Southcentral Alaska, mostly within the Municipality of Anchorage. This park is one of the four largest state parks in the United States. The region contains a great ocean shoreline, a lot of abundant lakes, immense glaciers and ice fields. All of this makes the park an amazing spot for landscape photography.
For this photograph, our traveller had to put his hands on freezing water until he got this amazing shot. The effect of the closeness of the water gives a great depth with the mountains in the background, that is a great tip for your photography. Playing with the depth of the picture will give a great result for your memorable photographs. It’s important to mention the light going thru the ice, giving the photography the extra touch of greatness.
#9 – SINGAPORE
This incredible photo was taken in Singapore, facing the Marina Bay Sands resort, during a beautiful night. Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort at the front of Marina Bay in Singapore, owned by the Las Vegas Sands corporation.
This is the one of the most recognizable buildings in Singapore. In this photograph, our traveller uses the water in the still bay as a mirror. We can see how the water reproduces the hotel’s lights, making an incredible mirror effect. This landscape photography technique is definitely a must for your next holiday.
#8 – CHINA
This landscape photography is stunning, not much explanation needed, right? This photograph was taken on The Great Wall of China. The Great Wall of China is the collective name of a series of fortification systems generally built across the historical northern borders of China to protect and consolidate territories of Chinese states and empires against various nomadic groups of the steppe and their polities.
This amazing location is definitely a great idea for landscape photography. In this photo, our photographer included people, which helps add all-important scale to the image. This photo could definitely be great for a landscape photography magazine.
