Your favorite spot

Where's your most favorite place to return to, where you know you'll make lots of great photographs?

Re: Your favorite spot

As I use images as backgrounds for my models, its mostly City Hall in Stockholm and a place called Heringe Castle where there are wonderful rooms and windows.

Grand Teton National Park or the Oregon Coast. Both are amazing places with tons of photo opportunities.

Re: Your favorite spot

I am a cloud and sky lover - totally. Just the fact that every time you look to the clouds it will be different. The light and shadows, the colors at sunset (I assume sunrise too, but I haven't managed that EVER - lol)... Loooove it.

Anyways, I live in a small town, just on the edge of town. There is a new highway just North of me, and when I step out and see we have a great sunset, I haul my butt down that highway and stop to take some shots.

This is not perfect - I am still learnign in many many ways, and forgot to lock the exposure while taking the shots for this. I still like it, though.

Re: Your favorite spot

Although I live in Arkansas, USA, and I love shooting here, especially the wildflowers in the spring, my favorite place to shoot in Utah. In Utah, there is everything from alpine to desert, wastelands to big cities. Yep, tis Utah.
