Viewpoint Areas

Our photo location guidebooks cover various areas in the UK and in the near future will venture into Europe and beyond. Each area marked on the map below has featured viewpoints from our guide books. These are some of the best landscape photography spots, both well known and lesser known locations, that you may find useful – whether you are travelling to a new place or exploring deeper into your local area.

However we do not want to restrict ourselves just to our guidebooks and would like you to use this space to share your favourite photography locations and your great photos. You can contribute by adding a viewpoint anywhere in the world and help others find great photographic viewpoints.

This page of the fotoVUE will continuously develop revealing new photography locations.  You can get updated on new areas and locations by subscribing to our newsletter.

Brunico/Bruneck

in ,

Styling itself as the ‘pearl of the Val Pusteria’ and with a population of just over 15,000, Brunico is the largest town in the valley. Voted in 2009 as the best small town in Italy to live in, it is well-known for its modern approach to traditional South Tyrolean...

Parkhouse and Chrome Hills

in

A firm favourite with photographers of the Peak District, the beautiful and elegant twin peaks of Chrome (often pronounced 'Kroom') and Parkhouse Hills look lovely at any time of year and can be photographed from almost any direction, such is their appeal. These incongruous hills are the remains of...

Corfe Castle

The Great Ridge

Across the Vale of Edale from Kinder runs the Great Ridge, a wonderful rollercoaster of shale grit hills stretching from Lord’s Seat in the west to Lose Hill in the east. It is a fabulous and very popular day walk and its accessibility and compositional strength means that it...

An excellent network of footpaths follows two rivers, Hoar Oak Water and the East Lyn, through many miles of steep wooded valleys near the North Devon coast. The two rivers converge at Watersmeet and then meander the remaining...

Cinque Torri

in ,

Cutting a striking profile above the Cortina basin overlooking the Passo Falzarego, the famous five towers of Cinque Torri are one of the most strikingly beautiful and instantly recognisable rock formations in the Dolomites. Scattered between the main spires lies a wonderful labyrinth of scree, boulders, tunnels and trenches...
