Trinidad, Cuba

The old colonial town of Trinidad in Cuba seems to be caught in a timewarp.

Schloss Lichtenstein, Germany

Schloss Lichtenstein in Germany is a beautiful Romantic castle in the Swabian Alps. When I visited it last year in October I found it surprisingly shrouded in mist and dusted with snow. The castle kept disappearing behind the mist but very occasionally, as in this photo, it would appear momentarily sharp and clear. Lichtenstein, incidentally, means "Bright Stone", and refers to the type of local stone from which the castle is built.

Monrovia, Liberia

The Liberian Broadcasting System building was built in the 1980s but bad planning and then civil war meant that this concrete monstrosity would never serve the function for which it was intended. Today it stands doorless and windowless, powerless and waterless, on top of a hill near Paynesville, home to more than 250 squatters, mostly children, who have nowhere better to live.

Monrovia, Liberia
These days I sometimes find myself running through the mud and squalor of awful slums, in pouring rain, chasing men in strange suits who are carrying the body of a person - who probably died of Ebola - away for cremation, against the wishes of their family. I can walk away from all this, but so many others can't. Happy Thanksgiving to you all. Be thankful for what you've got.

Monrovia, Liberia

For the last month I've been on assignment with the Red Cross in Liberia covering the Ebola outbreak, which continues to worsen. I get to accompany these guys a lot as they retrieve bodies from the slums of Liberia. It is at once heartbreaking, scary and fascinating to see them go about their business, doing a job not many would care to do. It is a job, however, that needs to be done as the bodies of Ebola victims are at their most contagious.

Portsalon, Co. Donegal, Ireland

I've just returned from a wonderful week in Donegal, right up in the northwestern tip of Ireland. I had wanted to visit the beach at Portsalon for quite a while, ever since I'd read an article in The Guardian describing it as won of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Though I can't say I'd agree with The Guardian's hyperbole, it is a wonderful beach and I decided to remain there until sunset when I knew the light would be best. It didn't disappoint and while walking around I found this collapsed bridge that linked a nearby golf course to the beach. It made for a wonderful addition to the composition perfectly reflected in the water.

The streets of Old Havana are a joy to wander around, offering a glimpse of how life in Cuba under the embargo has adapted and evolved differently from it's neighbors.

Vatnajökull, Iceland
Vatnajökull is the second largest glacier in Europe, covering nearly one tenth of Iceland's landmass. As you drive along the southerly part of Route 1 that circles Iceland, the enormous glacier, which is 1000m thick in places, comes down to meet the road. It is truly an amazing spectacle.

Monrovia, Liberia

Spending three months in Liberia with the Red Cross allowed me ample time to observe and document the heroic work being done by the Liberian Red Cross burial teams in and around Monrovia. It was sometimes tough, often surreal and always interesting to see these guys go about their work.

Monrovia, Liberia
Wellington is the leader of one of the Red Cross burial teams here in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia where the Ebola epidemic currently sweeping West Africa is being most acutely felt. His job is difficult and dangerous and demands courage and diplomacy. Before his team can remove a body, which may be infected with the Ebola virus, he needs to gain the acceptance of the family and the community. This often requires a lot of negotiation and discussion because families prefer to bury their own dead. But when Wellington speaks, people listen.

Διεκδικώντας τα στοιχειώδει, η ζωή για αυτούς τους συνανθρώπους μας δεν είναι δεδομένη, είναι πολυτέλεια...η απόσταση της ζωής με το θάνατο μοιάζει τόσο κοντινή για εκείνους.Μαθήματα αυτές οι εικόνες για εμάς τους δυτικούς , μαθήματα αυτοεκτίμησης, αυτοσεβασμού, καθώς η υγιείς ανθρώπινη ύπαρξη ΔΕΝ είναι δεδομένη...είναι πολυτέλεια...αλλά εμείς το ξεχνάμε....

I love those wild, wet Donegal beaches, especially when I'm there with the kids as the evening draws in. Sometimes showery weather makes for great light.
