Amazing Photo Locations That Will Inspire
Kjeragbolten boulder in Norway
The images of outdoor lovers standing on the Kjeragbolten boulder are both scary and incredibly adventurous. This rock is a glacial deposit in a crevasse of the Kjerag mountain in Rogaland, Norway.
Thousands of hiking lovers risk their lives on a daily basis just to grab a shot of themselves standing on this rock. A 1,000 meter drop combined with the wind makes this one crazy photo spot.
Pink Hillier Lake in Australia
Hillier’s extraordinary bright pink color makes for stunning photos found all over social media platforms. It’s no photoshop job, it’s one of the world’s few pink lakes and is caused by organisms and bacteria in the salt crusts.
Needless to say, the bubble gum pink is unmistakable and incredibly beautiful.
Benagil Cave in Portugal
This glorious sea cave has been around the globe on social media and the center of many interesting fake photoshop jobs. The cave is real and located near Benagil Beach in Algarve, Portugal.
Some of the most beautiful cliffs, caves and beaches are located in Portugal and this one is no different. It’s a 21 mil boat trip (and a little swim) but certainly worth the effort!
The Yunnan Stone Forest in China
Known as the “First Wonder of the World, these tree-like limestone formations in the Yunnan Province of China are simply spectacular.
This destination has over 100 scenic spots and is a favorite among tourists from around the world. This natural phenomenon also houses the Dadie Waterfall which is equally impressive with it’s 300 ft fall, a truly amazing sight.
Beachy Head in England
This spectacular 500 ft high chalk headland can be found in Southern England and apparently is the most famous suicide location of the area. The photos found online are so stunning, almost unreal!
This dramatic location is a must visit if you’re in the area, has views of Eastbourne and the English Channel as well as a neat red and white-stripped lighthouse.
I realize it’s late summer when …
… the sun sets earlier again in Sweden, leaving us all longing for spring again.
The sun is very important for Swedish people, as we live in an extreme climate – during winter, it’s dark all day long, while in summer the sun never sets.
So it’s always a big celebration when the spring arrives with longer days, and always melancholic when you start to notice the sun setting earlier, and slowly disappearing until the next year.
I realize it’s autumn when …
… I keep stepping into puddles.
The cities are grey and dull during autumn, but the forest is so colorful, with golden leaves and lots of mushrooms and that amazing smell from all the rain.
I realize it’s winter when …
… I wake up in the Sweden morning and the sun is shining over a fresh layer of white, glittering snow in the mountains.
The winters in the mountains are very special for us, and they make anyone share a respect for nature’s force – in the mountains, the winter is dangerous, it’s exciting – it’s alive.
