Banaue Rice Terraces, The Philippines

#231 Banaue Rice Terraces, The Philippines

A World Heritage Site, these ancient rice terraces were damaged somewhat during a earthquake a few years ago, but are almost rebuilt. An eight hour drive from Manilla, the area has a nice hotel, and many of the terraces are easily accessible. A few, like the most famous fields at Batad, require a hike to […]

Ephesus, Turkey

#229 Ephesus, Turkey

I often say the best Greek ruins are not in Greece, but in other countries like Italy and Turkey. Ephesus, famous from biblical history (Book of Revelation and Acts), is a great example, with the remains of a town, the famous Library of Celsus and a massive theater that can seat 25,000 people. It’s one […]

The Flysch, Spain

#228 The Flysch, Spain

This area along Spain’s northern coast has amazingly flown under the radar of photographers, but it is a true natural wonder. It reaches its peak at Zumaia Beach, part of a UNESCO Geopark. An excellent hotel sits right above the amazing formations which are somewhat like The Wave in Arizona but on steroids. These sedimentary […]

Cartagena, Colombia

#226 Cartagena, Colombia

My first suggestion for Cartagena is to be on a cruise ship or boat entering the city at dawn since Cartagena has one of the most amazing city vistas in the world, and makes for a great panoramic shot. After that, head for the old town of the city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage […]

Lighthouses of Maine

#225 Lighthouses of Maine

Lighthouses are scenic in their coastal niches, symbolic of earlier times, and beacons for hope and deliverance from mortal danger. As photo subjects, they are in constant demand and allow me to visit some of the most scenic coastal areas of America and the world. Certainly Maine has a number of the best anywhere, and […]

The Enchanted Forest, Spain

#224 The Enchanted Forest, Spain

When I wrote my original bucket list book “Photographing the World” a few years ago (available from the Tom Till Gallery Website), I definitely short changed Spain. I hadn’t been there a lot, and hadn’t seen evidence of a lot of great landscapes there. After a recent visit, I’m ready to correct this slight, starting […]

#223 Canadian Maritimes

#223 Canadian Maritimes

I featured Peggy’s Cove in my book “Photographing the World,” but here I’m including other sites in the Canadian Maritimes, namely New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. New Brunswick is very New Englandesque, right down to the covered bridges and great lobster. The Bay of Fundy is a good place to start with […]

#222 Castles of the Rhine, Germany

#222 Castles of the Rhine, Germany

The Rhineland region of Germany is home to a number of castles, many of which stand hundreds of feet above the Rhine River as it essentially flows through a canyon—actually called the Upper Middle Rhine Valley. These castles are high points for visitors taking European river cruises, but they also can be reached by car […]

#221 El Questro, Australia

#221 El Questro, Australia

El Questro Wilderness Park is unique to Australia. It’s a former 700,000 acre cattle station filled with so many natural wonders and so much ancient Pleistocene rock art, that it could easily be a national park, and is managed as one. The park is located in the Kimberley region of the Western Australia near the […]
