Twelve Photos Proving England Is Beautiful

My tour through Great Britain gave me everything I could wish and hope for, and I came away with one of my favorite collections of images.

Because of research, I knew what I was going into, but I was still surprised by just how beautiful England is. To me, it is obvious why most famous landscape photography YouTubers are from Britain. Collectively, I spent 21 days in Britain, where 8 days were spent in England, 8 days in Scotland, 3 days in Wales, and 2 days to visit family and friends. Arguably, you hardly need to have a plan if you want to do landscape photography England. Just take a drive through the countryside or along the coast, and you will find spectacular landscapes to explore and photograph.

We started out in southern England, and immediately, the beautiful and old countryside excited me for what was in store. Before heading towards the north, we spent three days in Wales. I had made a good plan to follow with many locations I found to be interesting to photograph. Everything from the white cliffs along the shore, through old monuments like Stonehenge, to the beautiful national parks was on the table. I had also included a lot of buffer time as to be able to aim for the most optimal weather in accordance with my previsualized ideas.

It is also important to note that I do spend quite a lot of time in Photoshop polishing my photos optimizing them in accordance with my vision and style.

Have you been to England? What is your favorite location or area to photograph? For even more of my photography from England be sure to check out the video above, which is the first episode from my very well received series on landscape photography in Britain.

Great shots. I would like to go there, too and meet a few of the great artists I got to know via social media. Great people and great landscapes.

Would indeed be awesome. In many regards I'd actually rather photograph England one more time than the US :)

Thank you, Aritz! Always appreciated :)

#5. Like the leading line of the silky smooth waves to the cliff. I would recommend flipping the image (to see how it looks) as our brains prefer leading lines from the left side. Thanks for sharing!

Would be interesting, but I think there would be a severe sound of "NOOOO!" If you did that ;)

Do we really need photography to “prove” that England is beautiful? If I were Brit I’d be offended by that statement.

I have never imagined England this way. You have captured at your best and would love to explore with your perspective. Lovely Shots.

Thanks a lot, Jack! Happy to hear that :)

Been slowly combining through mine from a trip last year — I definitely wasn't expecting England to be *that* pretty! Dorset is definitely the best: https://www.flickr.com/photos/nybblr/24394880678/

I would love to go there, too and meet a few of the awesome artists I got to realize thru social media. Great people and exceptional landscapes. https://mentorshouse.co.uk/
