BEAUTY may be in the eye of the be­holder for some, but when it comes to Perth, the scenery of our amaz­ing city re­ally does lend it­self to some amaz­ing pho­tog­ra­phy.

We've listed our top 10 places to take a pho­to­graph as part of #snap­perth in no par­tic­u­lar or­der:

1. Kings Park With its sweep­ing views of the river and ci­tyscape, you can­not go wrong tak­ing a pho­to­graph from Kings Park. Pick any spot along Fraser Av­enue to give you an amaz­ing shot; but make sure you check out the Bali me­mo­rial, the war me­mo­rial, the look­out and the Lot­tery­west Fed­er­a­tion Walk­way.

2. Zig Zag Scenic Drive If you re­ally want to see what the ur­ban sprawl of Perth looks like from above, make your way along the scenic drive at Kala­munda on a clear day or a clear night. This spot is the best place to see what our beau­ti­ful city looks like be­tween the Hills and the coast.

3. Araluen Botan­i­cal Gardens, Ro­ley­stone Take a drive to Araluen Botanic Park early in spring and check out the in­cred­i­ble rain­bow of colours from the newly-bloomed tulips.

4. Pen­guin Is­land If you want a slice of par­adise fea­tur­ing crys­tal clear wa­ters and white sand, make your way to Shoal­wa­ter Ma­rine Park. You can take tours across to Pen­guin Is­land or you can stroll around the coast­line and get some mag­nif­i­cent snaps.

5. Pin­na­roo Val­ley Me­mo­rial Park While this is a much more som­bre lo­ca­tion, the nat­u­ral sur­rounds and res­i­dent kan­ga­roos make for some great pho­tog­ra­phy.

6. Avon Val­ley Head east along the Great East­ern High­way in spring and you will be treated to the sim­ply stun­ning yel­low burst of colour from the canola crops that cover the land.

7. Man­durah Jetty A short walk down Marco Polo Drive, this jetty is a beau­ti­ful cen­tre­piece for any photographer, sur­rounded by the wa­ters of the ma­rina. Great to pho­to­graph dur­ing the day or in the evening.

8. Rot­tnest Is­land Take a ride around the is­land and take your pick of pho­tog­ra­phy sub­jects. From the quokkas to the beau­ti­ful bays filled with crys­tal-clear wa­ter, there is plenty here.

9. Cottes­loe Beach Whether it's the iconic py­lon, the beau­ti­ful wa­ters or the in­cred­i­ble view look­ing back from the beach, Cottes­loe is one of the most stun­ning beaches in Perth.

10. Joon­dalup Re­sort From the stun­ning ar­chi­tec­ture to the per­fectly-cu­rated rolling greens of the golf course, the land­scap­ing here is quite sim­ply breath­tak­ing.
