I'm lucky to have the Yorkshire Dales, Lakes District and Peak District within easy reach. Whilst I agree you can find nice shots locally, planning a trip to capture truly epic landscapes is always a treat.
Great British Coastline
We're a small island that's punching above our weight when it comes to photogenic coastlines. Being small has its advantages, you can easily shoot sunrise over Flamborough Head and watch it set over South Stack Lighthouse on the same day.
Woodlands & Waterfalls
The beauty of woodland has to be its diversity throughout the year. Woodlands change dramatically in all four seasons providing great value for money! And who doesn't love a waterfall from time to time!
I'm not an experienced astrophotographer but I head out with a head torch when I can. Seeing the stars in a dark sky location is truly magical, it's just a shame you're at the mercy of the weather gods when shooting the stars.
