Favourite Tropical Escapes #7: Sunrise on the Jetty in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. --------- Our final  one that we wanted to showcase this week is in Mexico. It was an early morning rise to get this shot but well worth it. The one thing that I love about sunrises is that you are almost always alone. It is, in my opinion, the most peaceful time of the day. Nobody rushing around, the still waters and it seems like you have the whole world to yourself. There is something serene about standing at the waters edge and just listening to mother nature wake up. ------ #mexico #sunrise

Favourite Tropical Escapes #6: Sunset in Wailea on the west coast of Maui. ------- On the west coast of Maui lies the small town of Wailea. Not only is it home to some of the best beaches on the island it is also known for its stunning sunsets. This night was no exception. As we sat and dined at the beautiful @grandwailea we were treated to this pastel coloured sunset. What a treat. It was like getting dessert before the main course! -------- #hawaii #visitmaui

Favourite Tropical Escapes #5: The stunning white beaches of Ko Lipe, Thailand. ------- Thailand is full of great islands to visit but one our favourite is Ko Lipe. It is in the far south and is a bit difficult to reach but once you do you feel like you have paradise to yourself. We spent a week here and basically did nothing. It is the perfect escape. ------ #thailand #thailandinsider

Favourite Tropical Escapes #4: The last light of the day in Santorini, Greece. ------- Santorini is a dream destination. Everywhere you look there is another beautiful scene. the white building contrasted with that famous Santorini blue is something you will never forget.  This shot was taken from a pretty famous location in Oia. What you don't see is the hoards of people behind me. If you do want to shoot this scene then I recommend getting there early. It can get pretty crazy. ------ Camera: Canon 5D MKII Lens: 16-35 2.8 30 seconds at F/11 ISO: 50 ------ #santorini #greece

Favourite Tropical Escapes #2: The Exuma Cays in the Bahamas ------- Another of our favourite tropical escapes is the Exuma's. It is located off the main island in the Bahamas and is a stunning group of Cays of which some are owned by movie stars like Johny Depp and Oprah Winfrey. Not only are they beautiful but you will also fall in love with the Bahamian culture and food. This is still one of my favourite destinations. ------- Camera: Canon 5DMKII Lens: Canon 16-35mm .8 F/8 at 1/50 ISO: 50 -------- #visitbahamas #bahamas

Favourite Tropical Escapes #1: Following the path to paradise in The Maldives. ------- As winter sets in here in North America I though it would be fun to countdown our favourite tropical destinations we have loved visiting. So over the next week we will be highlighting our favourites. We start off with The Maldives. We had always wanted to visit this island paradise and when we were in Sri Lanka in 206 we took advantage of how close it was and spent a week on 2 different resorts. The Maldives lived up to all of my expectations especially the @cinnamonhotels Hakuraa Huraa. This shot was what the sunsets were like every night! -------- Camera: Sony A7RII Lens: 6-35mm F4 F/ 25 seconds -------- #maldives #sonyalpha --------- If you love our travel photography make sure to check out our friends at @beautifuldestinations for more stunning photos.

Reflections of Half Dome at Yosemite National Park in California. -------- Yosemite is a photographers dream. There are just so many different landscapes that you can enjoy. There is nothing quite like camping in the park and getting up to enjoy early mornings where it feels like you have mother nature all to yourself. The United States really does have some of the most amazing National Parks in the world. ------ #yosemite #Unitedstates

Mount McKinley floats on the horizon in Denali National Park in Alaska. ------- Alaska has to be one of my favourite destinations. Beautiful scenery, abundant wildlife and friendly people. A perfect combination. If you are a climber McKinley is definitely on your list as it is the highest peak in North America. Truly something that should be seen in your lifetime. Another one to add to the bucket list :) -------- #alaska #mountains

Morning rays over Mount Rundle at Vermilion Lakes in Banff, Alberta. ------ Morning at Vermilion Lakes is something that everyone should witness. When the sun rises and lights the mountains you jaw just drops. We spent a couple of mornings here and each day offered a different scene.

Getting close to the Crazy Horse Memorial in @southdakota ------- We were fortunate enough to be able to get up to the face of the Crazy Horse Memorial while we were in South Dakota. This memorial is insanely huge. The head alone is 87ft high and when it is completed it will become the worlds largest sculpture. The carving was commissioned by Henry Standing Bear, a Lakota leader and depicts Crazy Horse riding his horse and pointing in the distance. It is being carved on Thunderhead mountain which is land that is considered sacred by the Lakota. Quite a sight to see. -------- #thegreat8

A sunset view of Sigiriya from Pidurangala, Sri Lanka. .......... After a sweaty climb up and scrambling over the last few meters we were greeted by this fantastic view over the landscape below. We have climbed Sigiriya before but I really feel this is the best view. Plus we had the whole rock to ourselves. Awesome! ............. #srilanka

The Three Sisters rise out of the Bay of Fundy at high tide. ------------- One of the most impressive sights we saw during our 2 day kayaking trip on the Bay of Fundy was theses monoliths rising out of the sea. As we paddled in and around these giants you can't help but be impressed by the power and beauty of Mother Nature. Truly an experience you cannot miss when you visit Nova Scotia. --------------- #visitnovascotia #explorecanada

Top Images of 2016 #4: Reflections of the Taj Mahal in India. ------- We were first I line at 6am. Avoiding the crowds was a priority. Sometimes the Taj can get so crowded that takes away from its beauty. But we got the opportunity to enjoy this marvel of love almost unto ourselves. The detail in the architecture coupled with the story of love make it one of those places you just have to visit. --------- #india #tajmahal --------- If you love our photography make sure to check out our friends at @beautifuldestinations for more awesome shots!
