Stunning photos about traveling

This is a small, low-res version of a photo of Wang Sila Grand Canyon in Nan province, Thailand. It is one of the many stunning photos you see nowadays on internet about traveling. As hardware & software for making good / stunning photos is now within reach of many people. And everybody is making photos! And professional photographers can reach the sky & stars in making absolutely stunning photos. And with drones from absolutely impossible angles.

And what I am going to write now is not to discredit the photographers of stunning photos, but those stunning photos are many times not very realistic. Sometimes made from a point that is very difficult to reach or made with a drone. Then with software the photo is modified in a way that created almost an all new photo. In the end there is a stunning looking photo that might make you wanting to go there but the photos is not reflecting reality. And then I am not yet thinking of those photos that are a totally setup of something that in real life would never happen.

Do I like those stunning photos? Yes and even worse I sometimes also try to make photos like that (but I am not really good at it). But travel-information-wise it would be nice if photos would be more realistic.
