On-Location Scouting Trip Photographs From Our Editors and Correspondents Worldwide
Mui Ne, Vietnam (right) The backdrop may be dramatic, and the flowers and plants in the foreground would make any gardener proud, but when you’re working on those tricky undulating putts, the scenery takes second place. International Living Southeast Asia Correspondent Wendy Justice captures a bright moment at the Sea Links City course in the coastal resort town of Mui Ne, while her subject loses himself in the moment.
If you close your eyes and picture the quintessential French village scene, it probably looks like Sarlat-La-Canéda in France’s Dordogne valley. The region is perennially popular with expats, who find in its honey-colored limestone village allées the timeless Galllic atmosphere they dreamed of. International Living Photo Editor Hugo Ghiara captures light, shadow, and small-town French style.
“Home to an expat community from all over the world,” writes Jo Brierley, “Ubud is a very easy place to live. Rent a home with a rice field or jungle view, lose yourself in the fascinating Balinese culture, and make a home amongst Ubud’s friendly people,” she suggests. Traditional ways of life still endure in this small town in Bali’s mountainous interior, making for vibrant photographs and rich local character.
Roadside stall, rural Uruguay
Rural Uruguay has moments that could pass for scenes from a Spielberg-meets-Disney movie set in 1950s Maine. Jeff D. Opdyke evokes times past with this photo of a downhome fish stall bringing a touch of color to a dirt-road nook on the Atlantic coast. The sign, translated, reads “Fresh Fish, Our Own Catch,” and it’s a safe bet that you won’t need to worry about food miles when you shop at this store.
