Hogueras de San Juan - Bonfires of San Juan (Alicante), 2015.

Alicante celebrates the arrival of summer with the Bonfires of San Juan (St. John). In an atmosphere of music, colour, fireworks and extravagance, thousands of people throng the streets to experience this fiesta which pays tribute to fire.

The International Fireworks competition is held during the 5 nights following San Juan. I managed to get out to 4 of the 5 sessions, each time capturing the show from a different angle.

Sunset at the U Bein bridge (Amarapura, Myanmar), the oldest and longest teakwood bridge in the world, is one of those magical moments that fills your soul, and that you will cherish forever. No photo can truly do it justice.

Aprovechamos las luces de los puentes al atardecer y esperando la espectacular hora azul he tomado esta foto cogiendo uno de los barcos en movimiento que pasan con regularidad. Una clásica ubicación para disparar lo que es #Amsterdadm

Also known as the Great Indian Desert or Marusthali (Land of the dead), the Thar Desert forms a natural boundary between India and Pakistan. 

We reached the famous Sam Sand Dunes on camelback, in time to witness the striking beauty of the soft and soothing light at sunset, when the sand turns to gold and the  shadows begin to reveal the intricate patterns left by the wind.

Soon, the forgotten treasures of Cuba will only be memories... I am so grateful to have been able to experience them, and can't wait to go back before they're all gone!

Incense burning at the Thien Mu temple (Hue, Vietnam)

A few kilometres up the Perfume river from the Imperial City of Hue, lies the Thien Mu temple, the oldest Buddhist Temple in Vietnam, with its seven story pagoda, the country's tallest religious building.

As you enter the sacred grounds, you can't help to feel overwhelmed by the strong smell of the burning incense sticks, purifying the air.

The Arbore Elders (Omo Valley, Ethiopia)

The Arbore tribe is a small tribe that lives in the southwest region of the Omo Valley.  They have ancestral and cultural links to the Konso people and perform many ritual dances while singing.  The Tsemay people are their neighbouring tribe.

Arbore people are pastoralists (livestock farmers).  They believe that their singing and dancing eliminates negative energy and with the negative energy gone, the tribe will prosper.

The Caravan (Thar Desert, Rajasthan)

As the sun began to rise over the Sam Dunes of the Thar Desert, the camel caravan slowly continues its journey before the scorching heat sets in.

The Man from Barna (Jodhpur, India)

The key to capturing emotions is connection. The photographer must connect with the person in front of the lens in order to move the viewer. India is one of those places where breaking the ice is so easy and people just love the attention of being photographed… This portrait was taken in the small village of Barna, in the countryside south of Jodhpur.
