Two weeks ago, one of my biggest dream came true - I've visited Lofotens, Norway for the first time in my life. I was really eager to get there while watching the photos of Lofotens all over the Internet. Those 8 days just passed as 8 hours. And now I'd like to share my little experience and mistakes to make your photo trip to Norway easier and more comfortable. 1. Learn your places before you visit them. There are plenty of photos in Internet and articles. Be prepared and informed. Plan... continue reading

We're planning a trip to Glencoe in Scotland later this year, as it's a place I've often seen in films, books and magazines in the past and have wanted to visit for a long time.Living in the south of England, it's what we would call a fairly long drive up to the north west of Scotland and so we've planned to stop off for a three night stay in the Lake District of Cumbria. This is another extremely photogenic area and it's a win win situation because stopping... continue reading

Finding great shots while on the road, for me, used to mean finding great shots while hanging off the side of a road. My photography manta has often been “anything to get a great shot.” I keep a pair of rubber boots in my trunk just in case I end up in a place I might need them for a photograph; I’ve had friends hold my feet while trying to get the right angle for a photo (be careful!); and I’ve been nearly arrested for trespassing (don’t recommend this one, Dreamstimers... continue reading
This is my first time participating in a Dreamstime blog contest. I was intrigued by the subject as I am quite passionate about road trips.
