Hey guys,

In September I'm looking for a short travel photo trip to one of the above. Question is, I'm looking for natural shots of each country say Greek villages or small Maltese streets, just wondering what you all think is the best option and best location to get the best shots.

I have been to Corfu and to Malta and they are both very different. I would have to go for Malta though for photograph opportunities as there is a lot more choice. Corfu is a bit overdeveloped and you probably won''t find great photo opps for small greek villages anymore. Malta is not so touristy and you will get a sense of authenticity.

Hi Martyn, a travel photo trip sounds really interesting. I think you could still find some amazing sights in Greece, there are so many ruins and pretty little villages. You might need to travel a way out from the main cities/ resorts to find it but I'm sure you will. Maybe you could try Kefalonia instead of Corfu or Zakynthos for unspolit villages?

Thanks for the information guys, I have been reading up on Malta (mainly because it's a little cheaper :)) and it seems interesting even in some of the cities.

As you say Claire wont mind the travelling, i'm on a 3.5 hour flight to get there so a 20 minute walk or drive aint an issue :)

Thanks for the information so far!

Could anyone recommend any specific areas?

So I decided with Malta, looks a really nice place, lots of pictures of seen have convinced me that I will get the photos I am looking for!

Malta is supposed to be lovely. Where abouts exactly are you going? I still need some inspiration for my September holiday...

Staying in Sliema, seems a perfect base, not far from Valleta and it seems pretty central.

Do a few shots in Corfu, then get the ferry across to Saranda (Southern Albania). It takes about 30 minutes and the photo oportunities there are endless.
