Everyone gets their inspiration from different things, for example travel, people, books, websites and so on. In this category I want to show you what inspires me creatively. This time I would like to introduce you to my tour through America.
In September 2011 I went to America. I actually got the inspiration straight away when I was on holiday and I was able to immediately incorporate this inspiration into my photos. Gained so many impressions in 2.5 weeks and took more than 2000 photos. What a beautiful country! So much variety in nature and cities. I have visited New York, LA, San Francisco and various (national) parks.
From Amsterdam Schiphol I flew to New York and spent 3 nights there. Well, slept…. Outside the hotel they were doing renovations at night so there was a lot of noise. But that didn't spoil the fun. The location of the hotel was great, just 100 meters from Times Square. New York was impressive and cool to see.
The first day I went to the Statue of Liberty, walked through Lower Manhattan and finally 'top of the rock'. There I had a beautiful view of New York. The second day I visited Central Park and the National Museum of History (click on the photos to enlarge them).
After New York I flew to LA and started the tour by car from there. First stop San Francisco, a nice city to walk through. There I also visited Alcatraz. Funny fact, they even had a Dutch audio tour ;). Definitely recommended for the atmosphere and history!
After the cities came the (national) parks. The parks together were the highlight of the trip. I am a huge fan of nature. How impressive it was! I thought the most beautiful was the Antelope Canyon (if you visit the Antelope Canyon, definitely take the photo tour!). But the other parks were also beautiful in their own way. Each park has its own unique characteristics.
Definitely back again
It was a trip I will never forget, and definitely a trip I will do again. 2.5 weeks was really too short. So I definitely want to go back again to visit a few parks again and take the time to walk, geocach and enjoy it for an extra long time. Have you ever been to America and were you equally impressed? I like to hear it. Tips for beautiful locations are always welcome :).
