    Białowieża Forest, Poland

    Toledo, Spain

    Another World Heritage Site, this former capital of the Spanish empire is like stepping back into time. The old city is located on a mountain top with a 150-degree view, so be sure to bring your wideangle lenses.

    Black Forest, Germany
    This dense forest in southwestern Germany gets its name from its conifers, which can block out the light completely. The Triberg Waterfalls are a must-stop for any photographer visiting the forest.

    Cinque Terre, Italy

    This rugged coastline along the Italian Riviera used to cost photographers a small fortune in film, as it’s impossible to not take a picture every second step as you hike the goat paths between villages. Tip: try the local dessert wine, Sciacchetra, and see how it gives your pictures a creative edge!

    World's best photo locations: Brittany's pink granite coast

    Côte de granit rose, France
    This stunning coastline in Brittany offers 30 miles of pink granite rock formations and equally pink sand. It’s a landscape photographer’s dream, and can only be found in two other locations in the world: China and Corsica.

    Dolomites, Italy
    Despite being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this northeastern Italian mountain range sometimes gets forgotten behind Italy’s plethora of beautiful photo locations.

    San Sebastian, Spain
    This coastal city on the Bay of Biscay has your pristine beaches and gorgeous coastlines, but it also offers a bustling urban sprawl that is great for street photography.

    Aran Islands, Ireland
    On the west side of Ireland in Galway Bay, the Aran Islands draw hordes of visitors to their many Iron Age forts and unusual mix of Arctic, Mediterranean and Alpine flora.
