    There is no doubt about it. The best place to take pictures, in the world, is the place you happen to be. Your photos shall reflect your experiences in that place, and therefore will be special.

    If you should travel to a place solely for it's photogenic qualities, you may never really connect with the place itself. If that's the case, it will reflect in your photographs.

    So, go to a place that speaks to you, and let your photographs to the world.

    With that being said; You can't beat San Francisco, Boston, or London for some freaky sights!

    Go to Patagonia... Argentina you can see/ trek Perito Moreno Glacier , which is absolutely stunning and an amazing sight for photos and in Chile you can go to Torres del Paine , ranked as one of the world's most beautiful national parks in the world. They actually have photography trips there if you are interested in that sort of thing.

    if you don't mind a 7 mile walk into the desert w/absolutely nothing around but crazy rock formations try the Bisti Badlands Bisti Badlands in central new mexico. Even the locals don't know about it and it takes about 3 hours ride north from Albuquerque but it is one of the coolest places you will every see.

    I'm sure there are many great places, but I can't imagine anything topping Uyuni Salt Flat in Bolivia. A quick google search should give you an idea of what it's like. And what can be really fun are the "perspective pictures",w hich I'm sure will also turn up in a google search. For anyone who loves photography, it's a blast.

    Nepalfor Landscapes.
    Kathmandu for street photography.
    For a small country, Nepal has great physical diversity, ranging from the terai plain--the northern rim of the Genetic Plain situated at about 300 meters above sea level in the south--to the almost 8,800-meter-high Mount Everest , in the north. From the lowland Terai belt, land forms rise in successive hill and mountain ranges, including the stupendous rampart of the towering Himalayas, ultimately reaching the Tibetan Plateau beyond the Inner Himalayas. This rise in elevation is punctuated by valleys situated between mountain ranges. Within this maze of mountains, hills, ridges, and low valleys, elevational (altitudinal) changes rersulted in ecological variations.
    so
    Nepal is best for landscapes photography.

    Back streets of Paris. People think of Paris having a beautiful romantic feel, which it does, but it has a real grungy side as well which I think gives the city an even better charm.

    Hi Kevin,

    For some crazy landscape shots, you can't go past hot air ballooning in Cappadocia in Turkey. Here are some photos of the area: http://www.neverendinghoneymoon.net/flying-high-tour-of-turkey-part-2/

    CappadociaAnd, the beautiful lakes and waterfalls in Croatia (like at Plitvice Lakes National Park) and Montenegro are beautiful and cheap to travel to (if you have a car). We did a road trip there last year: http://www.neverendinghoneymoon.net/our-camping-road-trip-in-the-balkans/

    Plitvice Lakes National Park

    Also, the north and remote centre of Australia is unique and spectacular. You can drive from Darwin through Kakadu National Park, Alice Springs, Kings Canyon Resort and to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park (Ayers Rock).

    This is your best resource for Australian road trips to see some beautiful landscape: http://www.ytravelblog.com/best-road-trips-in-australia/

    These are some of the photos I have taken in Queensland and New South Wales in Australia: http://www.neverendinghoneymoon.net/australia-gallery/

    Australia

    New Zealand's South Island, home of Lord of the Rings, Hobbiton, extreme sports, snow-capped mountains and glaciers, has a bit of everything.

    And, I'm just going to throw this one out there even though I have never been, Iran. I've wanted to travel to Iran for a number of years now, but it's only become a reality since they opened it up last year. I flew over it on my way back from Australia and it was stunning from above.

    Iran

    Enjoy!
