A farmer in the Arequipa region of Southern Peru works his fields in the foothills of the Altiplano.

This photo was taken on a memorable day trip out of Arequipa out to the Las Salina salt lake around 50km east of Arequipa. It was a gruellingly slow drive climbing 2000m over lumpy and windy dirt tracks that left us exhausted at the end and involved us having to break into our own car in the middle of nowhere...

Along the way there we spotted some farmers working their fields with the Chachani (6075m) mountain triplet in the background. I had to lie in the fields to get this framing and had to wait in the sun for a few minutes for the farmer to return over the cusp of the rise.

Although the air was cold and thin, the sun was very warm. When the wind stopped it burned and when the wind started you were chilled to the bone. This along with the lack of oxygen would have made this pretty hard work.

Chiguata District, Arequipa, Peru, 2013

A photo taken in the Tunnel du Fayet when on a hike in the Gorges du Verdon in Provence, France. It was pitch dark for the most part, but sections in the wall were cut out every now and then so you could take a look at the river raging below.

Handheld at ISO 3200.

Upon our arrival in Spain we were greeted by a light rain that slickened the sidewalks and doubled the streetlamps. Thankfully the weather for the rest of the trip held as we explored rural Aragon before heading to the north coast and the Picos de Europa national park.

Another photograph taken in Paúl Da Serra the 1400m high plateau in mid-western Madeira. Most of the time, the plateau is above the clouds which results in views like this.

On the plateau, with clouds all along the horizon and no sight of the Atlantic below them, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Madeira was a huge rock floating in the sky.

The Naerofjord is one of the narrowest fjords in the world and probably has the steepest fjordwalls. Walk ins a straight line 50m (160 feet) inland from the fjordbank (which is at sea level) and you'll be at an altitude of 1400m (4600 feet)!
