Foto Friday – Tunnel View, Yosemite National Park

Yosemite Valley from Tunnel View

I just loved travelling around California in a camper van a few years ago and Yosemite National Park was the real highlight of the trip.

Yosemite is internationally recognized for its spectacular granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, Giant Sequoia groves, and biological diversity. Almost 95% of the park is designated wilderness. This is the classic sort after valley shot that everyone wants to capture ‘Tunnel View’.

Waiting for a ferry - Mekong Delta

Some locals wait on a small pier jutting out from an island on the Mekong River with bicycles for a ferry boat to pick them up and take them across to the mainland.

I like snapping candid shots of normal life while travelling around the world that would be anything but normal taken in the context of my life back in London.

Ta Prohm Temple, Cambodia

Unlike most Angkorian temples Ta Prohm has been left in much the same condition in which it was found: the photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings have made it one of Angkor’s most popular temples with visitors, it’s real Tomb Raider stuff!

A French team of hikers suffer on a freezing crossing of one of the many glacial rivers that need to be negotiated along the trail.
