Are you a photographer, always on the lookout for a unique shot? Then, you might want to try out a helicopter ride. You can capture some of the most beautiful places on Earth from the sky! Here are the best places if you want to up the wow-factor of your portfolio. 

The Grand Canyon

Fly over the splendor of the Grand Canyon, one of the most majestic places in the world. The best time is during sunset, when the rocks of the canyon walls light up in all shades of reds and oranges. You won’t need a filter for these pictures!

New York City

No matter when you go, the skyline of New York City is breathtaking. On sunny days, the skyscrapers shine against a beautiful blue sky. On cloudy days, the city has a mysterious feel, as fog covers the tops of many buildings. And at night, you’ll get to see the city lit up in neon colors. 

The Great Barrier Reef, Australia

Climate change has caused much of the Great Barrier Reef to die off, so head out on a helicopter ride to see this natural wonder before it turns completely white. You’ll get a splendid view of the ocean and the beaches, with the Australian landscape behind it all. Sunrise or sunset are the best times to go for colorful skies and perfect natural lighting. You’ll have to put aside concerns about the polluting copter.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

For the ultimate shot of Brazil’s rolling hills and mountains, you’ll want to head up into the clouds. From a helicopter, you’ll get to see the Christ the Redeemer Statue in a whole new light. Another bonus of a helicopter ride is that you’ll get a nice break from the hustle and bustle of Rio de Janeiro, at least for an hour or so.

Kauai, Hawaii

Ever wonder what it’s like to see the tropical forests of Hawaii from the sky? Take a helicopter ride to appreciate the natural wonders of this chain of islands. You don’t have to just stick to Kauai, either. The Big Island is another popular destination for snapping one-of-a-kind photos.
