Outside the U.S. of course... Doubt anyone would include anything from here anyway, ha.

I'm finishing up my last year of school and my final semester project in Photography is going to include pictures from places I want to travel to when I'm older.

I don't want a bunch of tourist locations though, and figured that since GTU is a very diverse society, you could probably help me out. smile.gif I'll probably be asking if anyone has pictures from any of these places soon as well.


They don't have to be historically significant or anything... As long as they're fun and such.



I'll check back on this later. smile.gif Thanks!!

Oh, and the Yorkshire Moors. Very bleakly beautiful - think Wuthering Heights.

Is there a name for when you are homesick for a place that isn't home?

I know you said outside of The US, but there are small parts of the Oregon forest still totally untouched by human beings at all and they're the most soulful, beautiful places I've ever seen.

Hang on, I forgot the number 1 obscure-yet-beautiful placein my experience: the Isle of Arran, off the west coast of Scotland. Tiny island with several big mountains, loads of secluded bays, moorland, woods, fishing villages, and on a sunny evening the sight of the mist rolling in from the sea is breathtaking, as it enshrouds the mountains in the distance (I know that was quoting "Mull Of Kintyre", but it's no wonder, as the Mull is just across a short straight from Arran).

Does anyone else think that she's only asking so when she does her presentation, other kids can say "Oh, gee, she's SO adventurous! What a unique mind!"

This is a pretty little place called Ruapuke. We go fishing off the end of that bit there


Have to drive up through the paddocks to get there:




But when you look straight out theres nothing. Just the edge of the world.

ooh also Stingray Bay is awesome



ooh I also loved sailors grave beach for the awesome patterns in the sand:

Ignoring my other sarcy suggestion Mont Dore in France is lovely and not full of foriegn tourists. Cormeyeur in Italy is lovely to. Just google them to see my point.

I hear the middle of the Pacific Ocean is pretty nice this time of year.

This doesn't actually fit into this thread, because I wouldn't recommend visiting the location to be described on account of the fact that it is not on a large scale very noteworthy or outstanding, but I just walked around a really pretty lake. It's in South San Francisco, so one could imagine that it's hardly a scene of nature - but it is a naturally formed lake, so the water line and plants and stuff (barring the huge quantity of non-native species, but I'm going to ignore them) are roughly as they would have been had the area never been heavily populated. The scene of "nature" makes a brilliant contrast to the somewhat grungy and dirty looking (and obviously extremely unnatural looking) city backdrop, and the combination of the two makes an even better backdrop to watch the moon fall and the sun rise.

I don't have pictures, but I felt like sharing that.

There's no time to explain. Everyone must post pictures of fish.
