There's much to be said for slow travel. Taking extra time to savor your surroundings -- without racing to catch the next bus or hustle toward the next tour -- is often the best way to truly get to know a place as a traveler, not as a tourist.

This point was proven yet again when HuffPost asked the Snapwire photographer community for the best long-exposure views they've ever captured. Long exposure photography takes time, patience and a willingness to go slowly, much like slow travel itself. And from New Zealand to Lake Tahoe, these views show that no matter where you go, taking an extra breath and savoring an extra moment is always worth it.
