Last month I have been re-visiting Scotland (my previous visit was in 2011). On a variety of different hikes in the western highlands – including a four-day hike in the wilderness area north of Kinlochewe – I captured new impressions of the harsh Scottish landscapes. I added the new pictures to my existing Western Scotland gallery. Below some samples.
The following two images show details of the Caldera de Taburiente on the island La Palma (Canary Islands). Hopefully, I will soon be able to publish the entire gallery from my trip.
One might think that a desert does not provide much diversity. My recent trip to Oman where I visited the world’s largest sand desert Rub al-Khali (Arabic for “Empty Quarter”) proved this assumption wrong. The variety of shapes and landscapes – all mostly made of sand – was really surprising.
