One of my dreams was one day go to the remote Kamchatka region. As a wildlife and landscape photographer I did not want to let it happen anymore, so we went with some colleagues and my always companion woman to Kamchatka. That was at the...More

Beautiful excursion partly with off road car and partly on foot. Sky and temperature were beautiful with a lot of snow. Volcanos still actives in the region
