Most Iconic Places in the World to Photograph

The world is full of iconic places for you to photograph.
From jaw-dropping vistas to city streets packed – we’ve gathered the most amazing in this most iconic places to photograph list.

Zion Park – Utah, USA

Ansel Adams made Zion National Park in Utah famous through his black and white iconic images. Many photographers, professionals, and hobbyists alike have made the trek then.
It’s not hard to see why. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world.
This is a whopping 229-square-mile (590 km2) park. Zion Canyon itself is 15 miles (24 km) long and up to 2,640 ft (800 m) deep.
The canyon walls are a reddish-colored Sandstone, slowly eroded by the North Fork of the Virgin River. This allows for beautiful landscape images. And due to the sheer size, you won’t need to take the same image twice.
Numerous plant species, and 289 species of birds, reside here. And 75 mammal species (including 19 species of bat), and 32 reptiles inhabit the park’s four life zones. These are desert, riparian, woodland, and coniferous forest. Zion Park includes mountains and canyons first and foremost. But you can also find buttes, mesas, monoliths, rivers, slot canyons, and natural arches. This is where you’ll find Angels Landing, the Narrows, Checkerboard Mesa, and the Great White Throne.

Stonehenge, UK

Stonehenge has always been a staple of sights to see in Great Britain. This prehistoric monument in Wiltshire consists of a ring of standing stones, each around 13 feet (4 m) high and 7 feet (2.1 m) wide.
These stones, weighing around 25 tons, have been sitting there for 4-5,000 years. Such a beautiful and unique deserves great images. Luckily for you, most of the work is already completed.
Get to this cultural British icon early in the morning for the Golden Hour and sunrise. Failing that, aim for the sunset and then the blue hour.


These sections are specific to a monument, park, or area. However, Iceland isn’t a very big area so it is possible to look at the island as a whole.
Iceland has been gaining popularity over the last few years. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Photographers flock from all over the globe to capture beautiful landscape photography.
Iceland is a great location for many reasons. The Northern Lights, for example.
These are naturally occurring results of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere. These clash with charged particles released from the sun.
On the island, you will find many great locations that will no doubt seem familiar. The waterfall Seljalandsfoss, highlands Landmannalaugar and mountain Kirkjufell are just a few.
That’s because Iceland is one of the most photographed places in the world.
