Photo @chrisburkard. Wild and far away places drive me forward. They inspired my start in photography in the first place and keep me stoked. But sometimes, the places I grew up beside can hold adventure, you just need a long rope.

Diving under the chaos of a breaking wave is a hard feeling to describe. There is so much power being pushed over top of you, yet there is a moment of serenity as you're gliding through the calmer water underneath. It’s important to keep your eyes wide open to not miss the view… and to not hit the reef below. @thetorpedopeople

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - Scientists are dwarfed by giant ice formations towering above them inside Schwarzmooskogel Eishöhle in Austria. Mountain regions respond sensitively to climate change. Taking advantage of Alpine caves, a team of scientists led by Swiss Paleoclimatologist Dr. Marc Luetscher from the Swiss Institute for Speleology and Karst Studies (SISKA), is working to understand how permafrost has evolved through time. Ice caves form through a combination of snow intrusion and/or congelation of water infiltrating a karst system. Often up to several centuries old, the climate record of this ice remains largely under-studied. Today we are also able to tell if a cave was an ice cave in the past. This is achieved by looking for cryogenic cave calcites. These form when water enters a cave, and freezes and turns to ice. In this process, the water becomes progressively enriched in ions to the point that it becomes super-saturated.

Photo by @max.lowe // I never valued a warm fire quite as much as on a cold night in wild country. A few years ago I was on a backcountry mission that went late. While my friend @sniktasam and I waited for our friends to meet us after their ski, we built a big fire as temperatures dropped to wait out the onset of winters night. The memory of that roaring blaze under dark blue snowy mountains sticks with me till today.
