The most beautiful landscapes in Ecuador for photography lovers

Ecuador in pictures

A picture is worth a thousand words! And these photographs of some of the most beautiful landscapes in Ecuador will make you feel like travelling there with hand-held camera only. We hope you enjoy them!

Ecuadorian Andes mountain range is an example of the rich variety of landscapes that can be seen in Ecuador. The ‘Golden Hour’ at the end of the day is one of the most precious moments for a photo shoot on the spot, as the light of the sunrise reflects on the snow and creates a very special atmosphere. Another great scenario is while taking the “Devil’s Nose Train Ride”, you will be able to take photos from the train, while you contemplate the famous Avenue of Volcanoes: Cotopaxi and Chimborazo.

A different view of the amazing Andean volcanoes can be enjoyed from below.The Cotopaxi National Park is one the most important tourist attractions in Ecuador, after Galapagos Islands. We recommend you to explore the zone and discover the magnificent views of these majestuous mountains.

Let’s discover another treasure in Ecuador! If you love night photography, this kind of experience will be amazing for you.Some volcanoes in Ecuador are still active, so if you have the chance to visit them during their next eruption, you will be lucky and amazed. In the picture, you can see Tungurahua volcano in eruption, a breath-taking show of lights and colors that we could enjoy in 2015.

Another jewel in Ecuador is Otavalo, is one of the cities with more native population in the country. It combines the charm of an Ecuadorian city with the world’s biggest indigenous market and the beauty of its surroundings, such as the peaks of Imbabura, Peguche Waterfall, Cotacachi and Mojanda volcanoes.

When we think about Ecuador, we cannot forget the richest treasure, located on the Archipelago of Colon, popularly known as Galapagos Islands. This famous landscape can be found in Bartolome Island. If you want to do the best album of the Islands, we also recommend you to change your camera lens and then take a telephoto zoom lens for discovering the amazing flora and fauna of the Enchanted Islands.

Kicker Rock is another emblematic postcard of Galapagos Islands, located in San Cristobal. Depending on the hour of the day and the angle, you will appreciate a different result in terms of light, tones and shapes. Very beautiful!

Last but not least, there is another beautiful destination if you travel to Ecuador. One of the best experiences for photography lovers is capturing water while is dropping. We invite you to enjoy it visiting this breathtaking scenery, Cascada de San Rafael, an impressive waterfall surrounded by tropical vegetation that is located on the border of the provinces of Napo and Sucumbios.
