Highs and lows, ins and outs

This is the last of my posts on Morocco alone, not to say it won’t feature in future posts as it has been so easy to write about what I’ve photographed there.

Lasting impressions remain thoughtfulness of character in the people, organic pure colour in the daily landscape and intrigue in the culture. There is a brightness of colour even from the beautiful ramshackle buildings, there remains mesmerising deep black volcanic rocks, and moving always, the most vivid of bright orange sands next to the perfectly opposite blue sky.

You can choose to see everything or nothing, (if you’re really not looking hard enough). I’d suggest everything, or at least as much as your eyes can take in.

Shapes and Surprises

Pt4 The land in Peru held all kinds of surprises, from incredibly delicious passion fruits, to crazy unique landscapes and ingenious methods of agriculture – some ancient, some still running as family businesses… oh and some pretty cool animals!

This little guy is a baby spectacled bear! Never thought I’d see a wild bear with my own eyes, it really was an awesome moment, and not just because we’d reached the top of a mountain!

Lands of potential

Pt3 One of the things that amazed me so much about Peru was the diversity in the environment.
In a matter of hours we went from snow capped mountains to sweaty jungle.
Along with the change in temperature the people change, and the way they use the land around them.

When faced with these environments I worry I wouldn’t know where to start, where to let my pigs and Llamas roam!? Where to put up a pylon for my electricity?
The Peruvian people we met on our trip and those who’s lives we hiked past really are so resourceful and hardworking.
