Porto Timoni is an inherently unique beach, mostly because it is somewhat hidden below the Greek villages of Agios Georgios, Pagi and Afionas. In fact, there are two separate beaches which are disconnected by a small piece of land.
Porto Timoni is the bigger piece of land, and the beach is delightfully grassy with dense hills encompassing the two ends of the beach. What makes Porto Timoni more unique is that one end of the beach has regular blue water while the other end has deep blue water.
It is relatively unknown so the tourists can enjoy their space on any part of the beach.
Capture the beauty of the mesmerising Sagano Bamboo Forest in Kyoto, Japan. This park is also called the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove and is a peaceful place to explore. In fact, the quiet is only broken by the creaking noises of the towering canopy of bamboo as it sways in the breeze.
Capture the rays of light as it breaks through the leaves to highlight the unique beauty of the dense bamboo groves. This historic park is one of the most famous sights to see in Japan with a spiritual and historical heritage. Local legends have it that bamboo trees protect against evil spirits, which is why bamboo is regularly used in religious temples.
Emerald blues glisten against a sea of white-washed buildings, Santorini is a paradise for photographers. Worthy of postcard status, no filter is needed to capture the charm of this love-struck Greek island.
Discover beauty in the details of the traditional way of life, such as the outdoor markets and the well-presented food. From hilltop windmills, rolling hills of olive groves to mesmerising sunsets that illuminate the stone houses there’s plenty to capture in Santorini.
Photographing the natural icy colours of the steaming Blue Lagoon is a hotspot that’s favoured by couples and the old-romantics alike. There’s something quite magical about bathing outdoors in warm seawater equipped with skin enhancing minerals.
Although the Blue Lagoon is man-made, the calming blue of the water against the dark-coloured jagged rocks creates the illusion that this is a natural phenomenon. Snap the moment of when you take that first dip in the outdoor thermal spa and relax as the likes roll in.
