Anyone fancy a dip? The water may look inviting but it’s glacial and as cold as ice. Big props to Julie for bracing the cold to get this shotπŸ‘Š #newzealand #glacial #river

It’s that time of year again for one of nature’s greatest shows, and you don’t even need a ticket. This was taken on Senja last season and was one of the best nights of Aurora activity I have seen. I look forward to many more. #aurora #northernlights

You really can't beat Norwegian fjords for jaw dropping views. #norway #fjord

We spent a day exploring Bali's waterfalls last week. This one was pretty special, walking down the through the jungle and into the canyon, we followed the path along the shallow river, golden daggers of sunlight splintered through the green canopy above us. Finally we entered into the cave where we found this stunning waterfall. It's an experience I won't forget. #bali #waterfall #magical

Where's your favourite swimming hole? This is the To Sua Ocean trench in Samoa and has to be one of my favourites. It was formed thousands of years ago by volcanic activity on the island. It's a pretty special place, it feels like it's straight out of a Jules Verne Novel. And the best part is, there was barely anyone there as it's still relatively untouched by mass tourism. Visit before it does! #samoa #ocean #swimminghole

Recognise this mountain? It was used in one of the final episodes of Game Of Thrones and is one of my favrouites in Iceland. I'm looking forward to getting back here in November #iceland #kirkufell

Old Harry Rocks has got to be up there with one of the most photographic aerials in the UK, I'd love to see this in the snow. What's your favourite area to shoot in England? #oldharryrocks #jurassiccoast #sunset

Some seriously surreal full moon vibes in the Dolomites πŸŒ• #Italy #Dolomites #fullmoon

Remembering those perfect days and nights cruising around Marlborough Sound, New Zealand. This was in a way how we began our summer, and our current trip to Bali is the end of it. Looking forward to those snowy winter trips now though πŸ˜Šβ„οΈ But first, a day of waterfall exploring tomorrow around Ubud!

I was blown away by the beauty of some of Ireland's hidden treasures. We were the only people at this beach, I mean how is this not a tourist hot spot? One reason may be that it's not so easy to get too, it takes a bit of hiking. It's called Murder Hole Cove (that may be the other reason πŸ˜‚), some say because a young girl was pushed to her death off a cliff in the 1800s, but others because of the dangerous currents. I have to say though, it was one of my favourite beaches I have been to! #wildatlanticway #ireland #bestbeaches

I'm off to Bali for 2 weeks on Saturday, clinging on to the last of the summer but then I'm ready for the winter! I have Iceland planned for November and some other adventures on the cards. What do you all have planned? Anyone fancy a trip? #norway #northernlights #aurora

The sleepy town of Gasadalur in the Faroe Islands. Imagine this was your commute? 😊 #faroeislands #sunset

Can you think of a better backdrop for a morning row? #italy #lagodibraies #rowing

I've loved exploring the magical forests and waterfalls in Ireland this last week. This one is called Fowley Falls. Because it's not a touristy area it's relatively unknown and we spent hours here and had it to ourselves! #WildAtlanticWay @tourismireland

Got lucky again this morning! Currently on the east coast of Ireland in Louth, another cloudy morning, but well worth the 6 am wake up call when the sun broke through the clouds. The only thing I was missing is the view of the Mourne Mountains behind those clouds. #ireland #louth #IrelandsAncientEast (in partnership with @tourismireland ) #ad

Met this little fella by the side of the road in Lofoten. I swear every angle of those islands is photogenic! #lofoten #norway #horse

I got up at 6 this morning even though the forecast was rain, I know how fickle the weather can be in places like Ireland. Well it seems I had the luck of the Irish with a fantastic sunrise. This stunning place is called Cloughloughter Castle (you can see the turret on the island) in Cavan, it dates back to the 1200s. What a hidden gem, it's nice to see a side of Ireland that you don't usually see. (In collaboration with @tourismireland) #IrelandsAncientEast #ireland #ad

Like a scene straight out of a lost world, Lake SΓΈrvΓ‘gsvatn sits atop a huge cliff that drops straight into the Atlantic. You can just about spot my friend Juuso and it shows the scale of this place. πŸ‘Œ #faroeislands #visitfaroeislands

Senja needs your help! You may have seen a few of these posts going around. It's something that us photographers and nature lovers are very passionate about. I was sad to find out the Norwegian government wants to open the area for oil drilling. Not only is it one of the most beautiful places on the planet, it has the world's largest stock of cod spawn and is one of Europe's largest nesting sites for many seabirds.
Negotiations to open the area for drilling start after the 11th September Norwegian elections, and we urgently need your help to protect it. Please leave a comment below with a mention of Norwegian prime minister candidates @jonasgahrs and @erna_solberg, asking them to leave the oil in the ground. For more information, visit the Lofoten campaign website (link in bio). #LofotenForever #oilfree #fossilfree #LoVeSe #Lofoten

It feels like winter is on it's way now. And I'm looking forward to it. Lots of travels are on the cards. But first I'm off to Bali for my best friends wedding and to squeeze a little more out of summer. But after that, bring on the snow! Who's got exciting trips planned for winter? #winter #snow #mountains

One of the most popular falls in Iceland - Skogafoss. One of my personal favourites too. This was my first time here in summer and it was great to see it with lots of colour and without all the snow! You can almost walk straight up to it, but you will get soaked! Well worth it though. #iceland #waterfall #skogafoss

I can't get enough of these dramatic Faroe Islands images at the moment. We had so much amazing weather when we were there, I keep looking through and finding new edits I love. I need to get back to this country! #faroeislands #visitfaroeislands

Another angle of the Godzilla like Tindhólmur Island in the Faroes. I've never seen an island quite like it, can't wait to go back and explore there in the winter 😊. #visitfaroeislands #faroeislands #whpgreatoutdoors

One of my favourite morning views, Glacier Point in Yosemite. It's hard to beat πŸ‘Œ#Yosemite #sunrise

Some of the most dramatic weather I have seen, it was raining so hard but this splinter of golden sun stabbed through the cloud and hit the village of Gasadalur and I happened to be there just at the right point (it only lasted about a minute). This is one of my favourite shots from the Faroe Islands as it really defines the whole trip for me. #visitfaroeislands #faroeislands

The last 2 days we made a gruelling hike to Trolltunga in Norway (which literally means 'Trolls Tongue' - you can see why!). It's a minimum of 10 hours hiking to an altitude of 1100 metres. We decided to stay up the mountain though which added over 6 hours to the trek to get to the closest cabin. We arrived Tuesday evening and were greeted with one of the most spectacular sites I have seen. The best thing about it was we were there alone. After spending some time there we continued our hike to the closest cabin, arriving around midnight. The next day we decided to stop by Trolltunga again on the way down. I was shocked to see a queue of around 200 people waiting to have their time on the rock and get a photos. We got so lucky, and what an amazing thing to see that many people up there when it's such a long hike. If you haven't already, add this place to your bucket list; and make sure you spend the night! #TheWeekOnInstagram

The stunning coast line of the Faroe Islands. If you look close enough you can see a waterfall cascading into the ocean! πŸ‡«πŸ‡΄ #visitfaroeislands #faroeislands
