The first in a series of 3 ski-travel episodes, skiers Chad Sayers and Tobin Seagel travel halfway around the world to Kashmir to ski the high altitude Gulmarg gondola, only to find the snow pack is a ticking time bomb. Never the less, they find safe areas to ski and discover the beauty of Kashmir and the Himalaya – its people and its landscape.
Jason de Caires Taylor’s underwater sculptures create a unique, absorbing and expansive visual seascape. Highlighting natural ecological processes Taylor’s interventions explore the intricate relationships that exist between art and environment. His works become artificial reefs, attracting marine life, while offering the viewer privileged temporal encounters, as the shifting sand of the ocean floor, and the works change from moment to moment.
Jason deCaires Taylor has gained significant interest and recognition for his unique work, with features in over 1000 publications around the world, including National Geographic, Vogue, USA today, the BBC, and CNN and he has made several TV appearances. His international reputation was established in May 2006, when he created the world’s first underwater sculpture park in Grenada, West Indies, leading to both private and public commissions.
Taylor is currently founder and Artistic Director of the Museo Subacuático del Arte (MUSA) in Cancun, Mexico.
This spectacular landscape photography by John Parminter offers ever-changing views of mountains, valleys, rivers and lakes of Scottish Highlands and English Lake District.
The breathtaking beauty and harsh ruggedness of Scotland and Wales, home to some of the UK’s most amazing sceneries, is a constant source of inspiration both to explore and photograph.
I was born and brought up in a rural community in the English county of Cumbria, home to the Lake District or Lakeland as it’s sometimes known.
The fells and mountains of Cumbria have always been a big influence on me and I’m regularly walking and running over them either for pleasure or in competition.
After spending many years enjoying the scenery that’s on offer, I decided to try and capture, in images, the natural beauty that I’m fortunate to live and spend my recreational time in.
I’ve had tremendous enjoyment capturing these images and hope to pass on some of their pleasure to you, they are for your enjoyment to view as much as mine.
