A place I can’t get out of my head, is actually a combination I can’t get out my head! That combination is water and mountains. They go together like some other favourite pairs of mine; avocado and Marmite, picnics and summer, and weekends and walks.
I don’t know when my love for this combination began but my love for mountains I can pin point back to July 2008 when I spent nine incredible weeks in Nepal and Northern India. The mountains of Nepal are just stunning, obviously. My love of mountains then grew and grew as I travelled in South America for five months in 2010, if there was a mountain in the area, I was up it or photographing it. My love for mountains was then firmly cemented when I lived in Chile for a year between 2010-2011. Living in Santiago is so special because you get to see the mountains every single day! As it’s a valley, there are mountains in every direction. I used to admire them from my balcony, climb them at the weekends and sometimes wish for rain, so they could become snow capped once more.
But really, there is nothing better than a mountain view with water too. I think it evokes feelings of peace and just how amazing nature is. That’s why, it really is my perfect combination and one that I just can’t get out of my head! My top three most favourite of these combinations are:
I can’t wait to see more of this perfect combination on my travels and in Chile there are so many perfect opportunities for capturing mountains and water.
What is your perfect landscape combination that you can’t get out of your head?
