Whether you are a professional or amateur photographer, great vacation photos will be easy to take if you choose a destination that provides a naturally beautiful background. As most photographers know, outdoors photos turn out best when the skies are slightly overcast, so not all of these vacation spots are sunny ocean coasts. Nevertheless, all of these spots offer tons of sightseeing, history, culture, food and nightlife. So pack your bags, bring your camera and let’s go on vacation!
City of Galway, Ireland
Galway is known as Ireland’s Cultural Heart, and several events, festivals and celebrations are held there all throughout the year.
