Which Epic Destinations are on Your Bucket List?

My fellow photographer, you do know what a bucket list is, don't you? Well, in the event that you don't, a bucket list a mental record (or one in writing for the serious-minded) of things to do and places to see before you kick the proverbial bucket.

The thought is not exactly a pleasant one to be sure, but unless you believe you live more than merely once, it should be given considerable thought and deliberation. After all, for the adventure and itinerant photographer, itís more than a petty inconvenience that we have many more desires than time.

We at Epic Destinations, the leader in inspirational photo tours and workshops across the globe, have compiled ten of our favorites places around the world that we believe you should see and photograph in this lifetime, with full color images and a few words as to why they are must see destinations. There are many more than ten, obviously, but we feel this 2014 edition is a good start. Just click the "free download" button to the right to start your journey today!
