8 Most Photo-Worthy Places in Canada
May 26, 2017
From the Canadian Rockies to the Old Quebec City, Canada has an endless array of stunning scenes for photographers to capture. If vacationing is all about the photography for you, why not plan a Canadian trip around picture-taking opportunities? Whether you’re an amateur Instagrammer or a professional photographer, you’ll love these photo-worthy Canadian destinations.
1. Niagara Falls.
This classic Canadian attraction may be over-commercialized, but that doesn’t change the fact that this natural wonder is still a stunning place to photograph. Catch the glistening cascades in all their glory! If you have the right tools, a shot of the falls lit up in neon colours after dark is worth snapping.
2. Banff National Park.
Canada’s original national park has some of the country’s best scenery. There are endless locations to get awesome photos, but a few stand out. The picturesque town of Banff, snuggled up against the slopes of the Canadian Rockies, is a great subject. The park’s glacial lakes are all lovely as well, with their shimmering blue water. Check out Lake Louise and Moraine Lake.
3. St. Martins Sea Caves.
The fishing village of St. Martins in New Brunswick has one of Canada’s best kept secrets. The red rock sea caves on the coast are the perfect geological formation for creative photography! Try some shots at both high tide and low tide.
4. Quebec City.
While Canada’s outdoor world is about as stunning as it gets, the urbanized areas are hardly less lovely. If you’re looking for some shots of architecture or landscaping, Quebec City is a great place to go. Reminiscent of Paris and Edinburgh, this European-style city will keep you snapping pictures all day long.
5. Vancouver Island.
To take photos of a variety of landscapes in a single day, you can’t beat Vancouver Island. This island contains everything from rainforests to mountains and meadows. Keep your eye out for wildlife while you’re there!
6. Whistler Village.
If you’re near Whistler, British Columbia, you can’t miss Whistler Village. It’s the central neighbourhood and is a beautiful no-cars- allowed vacationing area. Christmas time is an especially nice season for photography, although spring is lovely for its colourful blooms.
7. Victoria Island.
If you don’t mind freezing your pants off, Victoria Island offers some breathtaking scenery in the winter. The summer scenery isn’t half bad either. Boasting beautiful weather and long days of sunlight, Victoria Island is sparsely populated and practically untouched. That makes this place the perfect subject for nature photography.
8. Old Quebec City.
Historic city centers make some of the best settings for casual photography. Catch Old Quebec City on an average day to enjoy the little details. Side streets, shop fronts, and horse-drawn carriages are just a few of the interesting things you can capture here.
