An Easy Path To Great Landscape Photos – Visit A National Park


Time after time when I view my own photos and gravitate to what I enjoy the most, 70% of those images are shot in a national park some place on this planet (with UNESCO World Heritage Sites coming in a near the top as well). It’s no coincidence that they are also one of the places I like most to visit.

If you are starting out in landscape photography and struggling to find subject matter, consider finding a nearby national park. And this goes for those of you outside the USA as well. In Australia they are all over the place while other countries might have a scarcity, but they are almost always worth the travel.

Sure, ‘everyone’ has been there before you, but if you are looking for experience and almost surefire shooting material, what better place to practice. After all, for all of us, every shot is practice for the future. Every shot hopefully teaches us something or helps us appreciate light and nature in some way. National parks will help you soak up that experience while helping you improve you skills.

How To View The Slideshow

To view the full screen slideshow, simply look to the lower left hand corner for a big X. When you click that, these words will hide away and you can see the full background slideshow of National Parks. Click the spot where the X was again to make the words come back. Hovering your mouse over an image will temporarily stop the slideshow.
