15 Places In Idaho That’ll Make You Swear You’re On Another Planet

Idaho’s unique landscape is a vast assortment of raging rivers, sweeping valleys, rocky terrain, lush forests, and arid deserts. Every habitat imaginable can be found here, which provides a wealth of opportunities for talented Idaho photographers with a bit of creative vision when it comes to capturing our lovely state. Typically on our Idaho Only page we feature the natural and manmade beauty of our state; today, however, we’re going to show you a completely different side of Idaho. With the right lighting, a few well-timed shadows, and the occasional touch of HDR magic, Idaho’s stunning landscape is transformed into an otherworldly expanse that rivals that of movies.

A very special thank you to the wonderful photographers who have shared their work with us! What an awesome opportunity to see Idaho from such a unique perspective, and I hope you’re as impressed with our local talent as I am! If you have any photos you would like to share (otherworldly or otherwise), be sure to post them directly to our Idaho Only Facebook page as well — we’d love to see them.
