Google's top 10 most searched photogenic spots in the US in 2022 - some might surprise you!

Eileen Tan/Dreamstime.com   Google recently released its list of its most popular searches during 2022, and when it comes to scenic spots in the United States there are some surprises. For starters, “scenic spots” in Google’s definition does not include iconic places like Vermont’s Technicolor White Mountains in fall or the yawning Grand Canyon in Arizona (and by the waym more about canyons later). Instead, Google users were primarily interested in where to see and photograph some of Mother…

A blissful moment with humpback whales in Bora Bora

Work being slower than in prior years - fewer weddings, couple's shooting, and visitors in general - has allowed us to work on our underwater photography. Taking photos of marine life is something I love doing, grateful to always have my wonderful vahine at my side. Animal photography takes patience and a good amount of luck in having the perfect situation, unlike a wedding or couple's  photo shoot, we cannot create the scene or situation for the perfect shot. We love photographing sharks, over…

Underwater photography in Bora Bora

To unleash aquatic photography, I use Canon + a Nauticam housing. I got my first dive certification at age 14, at 18 I had acquired a Nikkonos V with a 35mm!  That was my first UW rig, today and after having tried many underwater housings, Nauticam is what I consider to be the best brand.  We are proud to have sold a few prints to several magazines and also have a few available (at a reasonable cost) on our gallery! I use a Canon DSLR, a Nauticam housing with Inon strobes, several LED lights &…

  • Keith,

    Thanks for your suggestion about Wadi Musa. I am still figuring out the logistics.

  • Anil: I think you should stay overnight at Wadi Musa (I don't think you can stay in Petra itself) anyway ... it was a city, not just a building, and will take a considerable time to explore fully. Not sure if there's a sound and light show *every* night; it would be wise to check before you go.

  • Does any one have a first hand experience of photographing Petra, Jordan at night ? Is it worth it for a non professional photographer to spend big buck and stay overnight for just the experience ? Any suggestion where to  stay overnight to get an opportunity to see Petra and then photograph on top ?

    I do not have experience with  night photography, all suggestions are welcome.

  • I did. Thanks Ed.

  • Good luck, Inka! Post this on Media Only, too; let's get you some votes!
