Do you think the planet will be a better place with less humans on it?

The problems of climate change, disruption to essential ecosystems, species extinction, and conflicts between states and tribes threaten the quality of life for even the richest nations and put into question our long term survival. All of this compounded by growing numbers of people on earth. I think there is no question that for future generations, life on earth and what we know as “nature” will be very different from what it is today. We have to question how much we value the earth’s beauty and diversity, its natural systems, and what kind of world we want for the future.

This image spawned from two dear friends and I deciding to throw some swift plans together and drive four hours south of the city till we reached an ever-favourite Mountain range. We parked up in the darkness, made a quick  coffee to fuel us onwards and started on up the mountain!
It’s rather peculiar to climb a mountain in the dark. There’s very little clues as to what your walking amongst. We heard a few kangaroo’s skip off as we walked into their radar, bar that there was nothing. It’s only on the way back down that you often realise your walking trail was sitting right on the edge of a ridge.

It was about halfway up that we realised something magical was taking place. Once we had cleared the tree line we looked behind us and caught a glimpse of the most brilliant pink skyline. As we kept scaling the sunrise became ever more luminescent. Strangely it only ever got pinker and pinker, until we were flooded in bright, bubblegum pink and looking beyond at the range around us, the whole thing seemed some naturalistic Dr Suess wonderland! I snapped this photo on a Fujifilm X100 and I knew as I took it that it was a magical snap.

Tell us more about this image

This was shot during sunset while camping in the vastness of Makgadikgadi’s pans, one of the largest salt flats in the world, located in the middle of the dry savanna of north-eastern Botswana. It was my first road trip in southern Africa, roaming 5 thousand Kms around Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

I think this photo explores the paradoxical sensations and questionings raised while immersed in solitude in those space-time dimensions untamed by civilization: wild but conforting, empty though fullfilling, insecure therefore free.
