My Photography Bucket List
I have long had a travel bucket list (since I was a child to be honest!) but have never made a photography bucket list. So I decided I should have one, which got me thinking about the things/places I would love to photograph if time and money were no object…
The Northern Lights
It’s been my dream for as long as I can remember to visit Iceland and see the spectacular Northern Lights (no idea why we haven’t done it yet – it’s not even that far away LOL!)… and getting a great shot would just be the icing on the cake!
Tigers/Lions in the Wild
I enjoy photographing wildlife and there are certain animals I would love to photograph in their natural habitats (before they sadly disappear forever!). The big cats – tigers and lions – are top of my list.
The Pyramids at Giza from the Air
Egypt is on my travel bucket list too… but I am a little reluctant to visit this area at the moment due to the threat of terrorist activity. But I will get there some day and when I do, I would love to take a hot air balloon trip and get some great photos of the pyramids from the air.
The Sahara Desert
I am a big fan of deserts generally – I find their undulating, ever-changing shapes and beautiful light mesmerising… I also love the tranquility. And those starry night skies (no light pollution!) are a photographer’s dream!
A Solar or Lunar Eclipse
Capturing such a rare natural occurrence on camera would be great… if somewhat tricky I imagine! I live in hope that I will succeed one day, as I have tried once before but without much success (due to not planning my settings properly in advance – lesson learnt for next time!).
Earth from Space
Surely this has to be THE dream shot for most photographers, doesn’t it? We’ve all seen the fantastic photos taken by astronauts from on board the ISS… Unfortunately this is the one photograph on my bucket list that I am highly unlikely to ever capture (although civilian space travel is certainly not too far off)! But I think you’ve always got to have a dream, haven’t you!?
What things/places would you love to photograph if you could? Or have you already captured some of your dream shots? Let me know in the comments…
