    Cannot find any more beautiful place than the Capital of the Highlands - Inverness

    Falls of Foyer - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falls_of_Foyers

    Great place for skiing - Cairngorms, Aviemore - http://cairngorms.co.uk/

    Dog Falls, Glen Affric - http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/lochness/Dogfalls.shtml - still yet to visit this place!!

    Two places outside the UK I would love to visit will be the Land of Giant Trees - http://www.visitsequoia.com/sequoia-national-park.aspx

    Other is in Utah - http://www.thewave.info/ - looks alien like and magical ar the same time.

    Anyone veen to these places??

    If you have two weeks to devote to it, a great self-directed photo holiday is to fly to LA, rent a car, spend a fortnight driving around a selection of US national parks and turn your car in at SFO for the flight home.

    I have done that several times in both directions (although I sometimes take 4 5 weeks to it so as to justify the cost of getting there from the UK - once there, everything is very inexpensive).

    But a typical 2-week tour, starting at LA could take in:

    Joshua Trees National Park (California)
    Grand Canyon
    Zion NP (Utah)
    Bryce Canyon NP (Utah)
    Grand Teton NP (Wyoming)
    Yellowstone NP (Wyoming)
    Twin Falls (Idaho)
    Yosemite NP (California)
    Finish at San Francisco

    Take plenty of memory cards!

    Good luck.


    (I suppose that one of the reasons that I prefer those places to the Highland of Scotland is just familiarity with the latter. I can be in Glen Affric in a little over 2 hours. But you are right, the Highlands do have some great photo-ops, especially in really shitey (i.e. dramatic) weather.)
