It’s the first of February and snowing for the first time in Bath, UK. Some people stay indoors, others build snowmen, I…well, I become a medieval character for two hours. Meet Anam Fiain, the fair lady of the woods.
This was taken in Croatia, possibly in Dubrovnik, as the sun was setting miraculously over the pine trees and people. I should have thanked them for sitting still, it was one of those moments where everything falls into place. I thank them now.

The Lake District must be one of the most beautiful places in the UK. On a sunny day, not only are all the geese out for a swim, but you also get funny pictures like this.
This is me and my brother approaching croc infested waters in Kimberley, Australia. You can read about some of our adventures in North Australia here.
This little girl was begging on the way to Haji Ali mosque, Bombay, India. It is a stark contrast between her lowered head and the grand city on the other side of the water.
Winters in my home town, Piatra-Neamt used to be laden with glorious snow. The forests would be witnesses to quiet footsteps in the morning mist. A bridge can have many meanings, but I believe this one connects the world of story with the real world.
Door to Freedom
Vama Veche is on the border between Romania and Bulgaria. This is a place where the young at heart go and celebrate life in song around camp fires. I set up a tent on the beach, which turned out to be full of nudists. Freedom can be understood in many ways, but this sight made me understand a bit of what it means to me.
The sheep have left their sheepfold in Calimani mountains for the winter. They will return in spring, when the grass is fresh with morning dew.
It was a freezing day at the 12 Apostles in Calimani, Romania. Me and a few other photographers ventured in this place to grasp a thread of silence and beauty. This lonely tree was overladen with snow, similarly to how people are overladen with worries.
This beautiful beech forest covered in snow was witnessed in Pasul Bucin, in my beloved Romania. It didn’t even take a fancy camera to capture the atmosphere.
