Taking a load off after our glacier hike. Jökulsarlón.
I’ve been fussing over the male Blue-throated Sapphire, but the females have a lot of subtle beauty of their own. Especially since in this species male congregate, to perform in leks to attract these females. We don’t have many species on the peninsula with pronounced sexual dimorphism, but this is one you can see from afar, with the bright blue gorget lacking in females. @audubonsociety
I was hiking a 12km path on Odle mountains, and suddenly I heard a noise coming from above, breaking the silence of the place. I watched a bit around 'til I recognized a small helicopter doing a flight over the mountains. I shot several pics of it, but this one in particular to me shows how big my beloved Dolomites are next to a human creation.
:+: [ASHAYER Unpublished] Tatev Monastery is a 9th century Armenian Apostolic monastery located in southeastern ARMENIA | Ashayer is a 16 months expedition in a cargo van from France to Afghanistan via Iran... This project is an immersion in the tribal world. It’s a photographic epic about the nomads who inhabit the landscape of ancient Persia and Central Asia. In this book, I shared the daily life and seasonal migration of different ethnic groups who live in these regions.
