Top 5 Spots In The U.S. To Take Great Photos
By: The Nixplay Team
Summer is upon us, and that means it’s road trip season. The U.S. is the perfect country for a great road trip because of its incredible size and diversity of landscapes. You can take in the waters of the Pacific and drive through the Rockies and across the Great Plains in the space of a week, stopping off at the Great Lakes before continuing on. There really aren’t many countries with that kind of space or beautiful landscapes to travel.
And with so much natural beauty, there will definitely be some times you just have to stop and take a picture. So if you’re planning a road trip this summer, then don’t forget these great landmarks and sites to take some photos.
The Grand Canyon
There’s a reason this is perpetually on the list of stops for road trips west. The Grand Canyon is one of the natural wonders of the world, and you can take almost an endless number of photos with the changing light. There are plenty of scenic overlooks to stop at, or you can take a hike and really get some unique photos.
Glacier National Park
Take a turn up north, and you might find yourself stopping in Montana to see the natural beauty of Glacier National Park. The massive lakes left behind by glaciers, as well as the abundant wildlife make this the perfect place to take those outdoorsy photos of you facing away from the camera with a mountain range in the background.
The Outer Banks
The Outer Banks in North Carolina fall between the sunny coasts of Florida and the northeastern shores, but that doesn’t mean you should skip them as you travel up the east coast. Beautiful sand dunes and fantastic sunsets make these beaches some of the most picturesque in America.
New York City
You may have had your fill of nature photos, so head to NYC for a thousand and one great city photo ops. Seriously, if you’re looking for it, NYC probably has it. Take in the tourist locations like Times Square and the Empire State building, or get a photo with the Statue of Liberty in the background. If you’re looking for a more unique shot, then head for one of the many museums, Central Park, or get a little lost and find a place off the beaten path.
We obviously had to include California in here somewhere. We could make a whole new list concerning the state, but Joshua Tree National Park in Southern California is one of our favorites. The uniquely shaped Joshua trees themselves make for beautiful photography, but the rest of the park is equally gorgeous. Spend a day here and you’re guaranteed to come away with some eye-catching photos.
And when you get back home, remember that the best way to display all your travel photos is on a digital frame. You’ll be able to scroll through at will, or set up a playlist that encompasses your entire trip!
