    Your Ultimate Photographic Destination ?

    Where would your Ultimate Photographic Destination be and why?

    You have won the "One Powerball" so money is no object, time is not of a concern, as you've won enough for two generations of your family to never work.

    For me, I'm caught on Yellowstone and the Galapagos Islands. Then again, I could buy my own motor yacht and travel the oceans.

    You?

    Buy an island and turn it into a giant stage to create scenes of period pieces, or something that resembles movie sets, surreal of futuristic or downright horific.

    If you are saying just one destination, then it would have to be an Africa safari trip done with a dedicated well versed tour guide in luxury, first class all the way for a month at least.

    Yeah I guess the way I've worded it would be The One, but hay. You can have two if you like Lance.

    How much of the Serengeti is accessible, as most of the action is when it's wet, is it not? Most of the footage I'e seen, seems to be from the air.

    Penguins - Penguins and more Penguins. LOL Would be awesome though.

    Cuba would be my pick,for all those old cars & buildings.

    I have done some rough calculations in the pass to see
    how much it would cost for a 2 week trip from Oz, its
    not cheap.

    I have 'done' Africa several times now but my one 'must do' has to be Antartica. I have no idea if it would live up to my expectations but yes yes yes, if someone were to offer me Antartica......bring on the lotto!!

    Armidale in Autumn. - No seriously Angkor Wat would be one of my top picks, although not necessarily Di's. Having seen Dtoh's photos of Iceland this is one of Di's picks, probably with Dylan as the guide (but she wants to wait until it is warmer and with no hiking involved).

    I have travelled a lot in my life but nothing will ever beat my own back yard for photography excellence. The drive from Adelaide to Darwin is a photographers paradise - colours, people, wildlife and the most amazing scenery in the world.
