Almost two years ago I was on fieldwork on the easternmost slopes of the Andes, right where the Amazon basin begins. I was researching cloud/forest interactions and so I stayed literally in the clouds. Sorting photos today I came across this 'almost-night-shot'. The cloud forest is very beautiful, but also quite remote, humid and cold. Therefore a lot of living things stay away from it and evenings can feel quite lonesome. Watching fantastically shaped clouds get stuck on peaks is generally the most reliable form of evening entertainment the place has to offer.
I started my working life as a film maker. Then I began to feel useless and became a scientist instead. I love my new job but I can't give up cameras completely. Now I have accumulated so many photos that they're quite squashed in their digital box - so please click on them for instant liberation. If you want to know what cameras I use you have to click to see the complete profile.
