Blickling Estate, Norfolk
Situated on the outskirts of Norwich, Blickling Estate is a National Trust estate, which boasts 950-acres of luscious land. Within the estate you’re able to explore the walled gardens and the red-bricked stately home of Blickling Hall. Whether you capture the venue from miles away or stand from the top floor looking out of a window, every image will be absolutely fantastic.
Did you know that Perthshire is also known as Big Tree Country? Now that you know this I bet it comes as no surprise that this location has made our ‘best place in Britain to photograph’ list. There’s so many walking treks such as; the Birks of Aberfeldy, the Hermitage on the Braan and Lady Mary’s Walk that all result in striking landscape images. By the way these photos would look great on large canvas prints.
Cliffs Of Moher, Ireland
The Cliffs of Moher, in Ireland, wrap around the western coast of County Clare, providing a stunning view of the Atlantic Ocean. The rocky cliffs at their highest point reach a staggering 702 feet and stretch almost five miles across. If you prefer sea views over landscape settings, then this destination is definitely the one for you.
Cregennan Lakes, Wales
The beautiful Cregennan Lakes in North Wales are situated between the Mawddach Estuary and the slopes of Cader Idris. To ensure you get the most from the scenery here, make sure you visit on a wind-free day so you can capture the reflections of the surrounding mountains in the water. If you’re legs are up to the task take the Mawddach trail, so you can take in the gorgeous green scenes and give yourself a variety of photo opportunities.
Ullswater Aira Force, Lake District
The lakeshore between Aira Force and Glenridding has it all – a lake, woods and a perfect view of the sunrise. While the beech trees offer a palette of gorgeous autumn colours and trails for walks, there’s a boat landing that allows you to capture the setting from all angles on the lake. The area also has a range of wooded slopes that light up once the sun starts to rise.
Since all of these locations are outside, some of which are National Trust places, you must be respectful of nature. You want to capture the glory and beauty of nature, so while you’re snapping away you must make sure you do nothing to harm or disrupt. Take a look at these tips to ensure nothing happens in the process.
