I describe my photography as Views from the Ends of the Earth, because quite literally I've found myself drawn to the far north and south ... and I'm quite interested in the middle, from east to west, as well.
From the southernmost city in the world Ushuaia Tierra Del Fuego Argentina I've traveled as far south as 65 degrees in the Lemaire Channel in the Antarctic Peninsula. In the north I've been as far as 65 degrees, Fairbanks, Alaska. Neither quite as far as the polar circles, but in 2015 I will indeed travel to Svalbard Norway, starting in the northernmost city of Longyearben and exploring well above the Arctic Circle to nearly 79 degrees.
I mention the "middle earth" because I see the "ends" as the extremes from our perspective ... the farthest in climate, remoteness, wildlife and culture. So in the middle we have the equatorial and tropical Galapagos, Costa Rica ... and far from our western world, India. All HOT, rich in wildlife, and as we leave our western world, full of cultural aspects to blend with our observations of nature and wildlife.
As citizens of the earth I think it's a wonderful, amazing thing to experience the farthest reaches from our day to day experience. If you can visit the Ends of the Earth ... if you can go there, get there, and most importantly BE there ... you will have experienced something that few humans have ... VERY few!
