The Land of Fire and Ice, a rugged and remote destination that has become the travel industry's darling. Increasing crowds means you have to plan far more in advance than before, and you're sharing these fantastic locations with many more people. But when you're standing on a black-sand beach amongst icebergs you tend to forget the negatives and appreciate again why so many people are drawn here.

The Faroe Islands are an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark, having governed themselves on a standalone basis since 1948. Located only 300km from mainland Scotland, the islands are fast becoming a favourite landscape photography destination for many people.
The islands offer a mix of classic viewpoints (such as Mulafossur, Saksun and Mykines) and smaller "hidden" compositions that you can find simply by driving around and keeping an eye out for interesting locations.
Located in the Gulf Stream, the islands don't suffer from the same brutal winters that Iceland is known for, but still experience a similarly changeable weather system. Snow, storms, sunshine and rain clouds create opportunities for amazing light.
With most islands connected by an excellent road, tunnel or ferry network and a fast-developing tourist industry, the Faroe Islands are an up-and-coming destination for landscape photographers.

Isle of Skye
One of the quintessential landscape photography destinations in the UK, the Isle of Skye offers a bit of everything. From the pebbled beach and seastacks at Talisker Bay, to the mystery of the Faerie Pools and the majestic views over the Old Man of Storr. As a bonus, if you don't like the weather, just wait 10 minutes. It will probably still be raining, but the wind might change direction.

My home country and where I cut my teeth during my photography career. There are a lot of kilometres to cover, but there are some absolute gems to uncover along the way. From white sand beaches, to photogenic harbour cities and pockets of burning Autumn colour there is something for everyone here.

I spent almost nine months travelling around South America in 2016, covering Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia, Peru, Argentina and Uruguay. Highlights included the incredible Atamcama Desert in Chile, the Bolivian Altiplano and Patagonia. This gallery shows a selection of images that I think capture the magic of this continent.

Clouds over Valle de la Luna
Epic cloud formations floating over the Valle de la Luna, in the Atacama desert near San Pedro de Atacama.
Valle de Cocora
Volcan Ollague (Uyuni)
Cayo Cangrejo (Providencia)
Humantay Hide & Seek
Devil's Throat (Iguazu Falls)
Mirador de Kari
Also known as Piedra del Coyote, this is a lookout high above the Valle de la Luna. We got lucky on this evening, with enough of the amazing cloud formations hanging around until sunset.
Sucre at Sunset
We managed to stay up on the rooftop of the San Felipe Monastery long enough to capture the post-sunset blue hour when the city lights began to come on. Was worth being chased downstairs by an angry sister yelling about "no grande mochilas" and "no grande cameras".
Salar de Uyuni
Detail shot of the red waters and white borax basin of Laguna Colorada. Red sedimentation and algae provide the brilliant red colours.
Cotopaxi Summit, Ecuador
Roughly translated to "Fish Island", Isla Incahuasi is located in the middle of the Salar de Uyuni. For a 15 boliviano entrance fee, you can climb up to the top of the island to watch the sun rise over the multitude of cacti.

Valle de la Luna Patterns
Red rocks and sand, salt deposits and dried riverbeds combine to create amazing patterns in the Valle de la Luna.
Cementerio de Trenes (Uyuni)
On the outskirts of Uyuni is the train cemetery, a resting place for old mining and transport trains. The salty air blowing off the salt flats is particularly harsh on these steel machines.
Sunset over Tupiza
Tupiza is a small wild-west styled town located in south west Bolivia. Surrounded by high red peaks, the town displays influences from the cowboy culture of the US and is a great place to spend a couple of days after visiting Uyuni or Potosi.
Castillo de Glorieta (Sucre)
Located around 7km outside of Sucre on the way to Yotala, the Castillo de Glorieta is an abandoned castle which has now become a tourist attraction. Built around the start of the 20th century, the castle is now in varying states of disrepair, including the main staircase and entrance mirror shown here.
San Felipe Structures (Sucre)
The bright white rooftop structures of the San Felipe monastery, with the main bell tower of Sucre in the background. To the right of the shot is Cerro Sica Sica.
La Cruz del Sica Sica (Sucre)
Given the deeply Catholic population, most towns in Bolivia have a cross or statue of Jesus on a hilltop. In Sucre's case it has both, with the cross illuminated in the evenings.

In late 2016 I jumped on a last-minute berth with Quark Expeditions to explore the Antarctic Peninsula for a total of ten days. We experienced brilliant weather, calm seas and glassy water - amazing. The peninsula is a rugged and remote landscape of icebergs and mountains, punctuated by millions of penguins, seals and sea birds.
