You no longer need to lug around and wish losing bags upon bags of photography equipment because you can just carry it all in your pocket. But on that note, where are the best places to capture picturesque landscapes?

You can travel just a half hour outside of any major city in Norway and your eyes will be in for a feast of staggering peaks, quaint villages nestled in mountain valleys, wide expanses of ice and snow, and alpine forests.
Hawaii may be one of the most beautiful places on the list. A series of small islands, packed with lush tropical landscapes, waterfalls, volcanoes, black sand beaches, and beautiful people. Anyone who loves the vastness of the sea with the feeling of a tropical island getaway will find themselves in paradise with a camera.

Starting at the Qin Mountain range and the Huai River, the massive expanse called China is home to lush forests, seas of moss-covered landscapes, and mountains that mimic the landscapes you’d expect to see on an alien planet, there is nowhere else in the world where the adventurous photographer can find shots as you can in the Southern provinces of China.
