Memories of May 2013 – Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

Ecuador - Galapagos group

Can I say I still need to pinch myself that I actually was on the Galapagos Islands? When I flew from Guayaquil to Santa Cruz I needed to take as many photos as I could to convince myself that I was in the same place where Charles Darwin had been years before.

And although the wildlife is the key – its also the amazing distinctness of each island that makes this area of the world a must-see. I was continually surprised by the volcanic landscape and its intricate patterns.

And my last image at sunset still evokes my favourite moment – when everything gets quiet for a moment before the cover of the night brings out all kinds of animals to play and awaken.
