Road Trips & Instagram #IGTravelThursday
Road trips are a wonderful opportunity to whip out your camera and start clicking, however it can be slightly tricky to get unique shots and interesting perspectives. During our road trip to North Bay I asked my husband to pull over so that I could take a photo of the beautiful yellow field of canola that went on and on forever. I had passed it on my way through the first time and believe it or not, my girls were the ones that begged me to take a picture on the way back. Unfortunately it was too dark on the way home that day, so I promised myself that I would capture the beauty of that field on our next trip.
There are many unique and interesting sights that are located directly off the highway. Here’s an example of a giant chair taken just past Thessalon, Ontario. Granted the lighting isn’t the best, but it was our only chance and the kids were tickled pink.
Pulling over isn’t always possible, so I take many shots with my phone pressed on the glass of the windshield. I’ve been able to get quite a few great shots of the scenery
including a few breathtaking sunsets.
Of course, there’s also the famous rear-view mirror shot. These are done so often that I prefer to take them only when there’s an interesting angle or element of surprise.
Do you take Instagram photos during your road trips? I would love to see! Follow me @ChildMode.
