Borgarfjarðarhöfn is the perfect place to photography puffins. You can come so close to them. Since a short time, there is a hideout, which is a bit warmer than outside. Especially nice if you are in pre-season there. You will be asked for a donation of 1000 isk to enter the hideout, but it is worth it.
If you searched for pictures of Iceland on the internet, you have found this iconic location. This is one of the easiest accessible locations in Iceland. The access is 24/7 all year long. The only think to have in mind, is the small parking lot at the main road. There is only a 200m walk from the parking lot to the main location where you can get the waterfall and the mountain in your frame.
Stokksnes is a beautiful location which is easily accessible from the ring road. The piece of land is private therefore you are requested to pay entry fee (currently 800 ISK) at the Viking Café. If the café is closed, you can buy your ticket via a vending machine directly at the entry to the Viking Café. You can scan the entry ticket to pass the barrier with your car.
This location is at any weather condition and any time wonderful for photography but take the right clothes. The wind can be very strong and cold.
Eibsee is a lake at the foot of Germanys highest mountain Zugspitze in Bavaria, close to the border to Austria. It is a quiet famous location on Instagram, but still not so busy like Lago di Braies/Pragser Wildsee in Italy. Best time is definitely the morning, when the fog over the lake will be lightened by the first sunbeams.
Most famous is this hidden place with the rock upfront. The photo location is located at 47°27’35.7″N 10°58’34.3″E, but to reach this location you can either follow the coast line or enter a small foot path. You will find the foot path, when following the coast line for a few meters after you pasted the boat launch location. The path starts at 47°27’40.7″N 10°58’37.1″E.
Best time for photographing Burg Eltz is early morning or late afternoon, otherwise it is massively crowded. I didn’t expect to find so many crowds there. I think only Angkor Wat and Taj Mahal were more crowded even at sunset.
To reach this location, you can park your car at the parking location on the top at 50°12’42.8″N 7°20’21.5″E. Now there are two ways to reach the castle. I really recommend to use the road at the south end of the parking space, where the shuttle is operating and not the foot path at the west of the parking space. Taking the road on the way down to the castle, you will find the first outlook at the small chapel at 50°12’26.8″N 7°20’12.3″E and the second one at 50°12’27.5″N 7°20’17.1″E.
Down at the castle you will find the most famous frontal view on the castle at 50°12’22.4″N 7°20’11.5″E and there are several possibilities for a beautiful sideview by taking the footpath on the right of the castle.
