Most of us have a running bucket list of sorts, don’t we? Such lists are filled with incredible things we hope to accomplish or experience before we kick the bucket, so to speak. We add to them here and there as we make our way through life as is only natural. When you’re a landscape photographer it only makes sense for that bucket list to include a number of must-capture shots. This wide, wonderful world is chock full of locations capable of taking your breath away, after all, and the following are just a few of the most spectacular. Consider adding any or all of them to your landscape photography bucket list immediately.

Even beginning photographers with only a casual interest in landscape photography can’t deny the positively outstanding beauty of the United Kingdom’s Jurassic Coast. This timeless location features ancient landforms and lush vegetation that’s like something from another world. Well worth visiting, photographing, and fully exploring during your lifetime!

  1. Yosemite National Park

California’s majestic Yosemite National Park is so much more than a veritable treasure trove for those with an eye for gorgeous landscape photography.

  1. Banff, Canada

Banff is a little resort town located in the midst of the Canadian Rockies. It’s known for its otherworldly hot springs, as well as its picture-perfect views of some of the world’s most incredible mountain peaks. This makes it a must-see for any landscape photography enthusiast with a soft spot for perfect mountain sunrises and flawless lakeside shots.

  1. Kyoto, Japan

Kyoto is the type of location that has something to offer absolutely any landscape photographer, as it’s the perfect mixture of ancient tradition and cutting edge modern wonders.

  1. The Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are famed the world over for the way they positively teem with gorgeous wildlife and staggering vistas that are unlike anything you’ll see elsewhere in the world.
