- Last light falls on the little known Borohoro mountains in Kazakhstan, just a few miles from the border with Western China.
Most of the peaks beyond are unclimbed, being in a politically sensitive area. I discreetly parked my rental car on a small dirt track a few hours walk away and scrambled up to a ridge to camp for the night, where I was accompanied by a herd of free-roaming horses.
- Mosses create a rare splash of bright colour on a lakeshore in the Istjorndalen valley in the high Arctic archipelago of Svalbard.
Most areas at this latitude on Earth are completely buried under ice and snow, but here the influence of the gulf stream and the local topography creates warmer temperatures in the centre of the main island of Spitzbergen. Every year in the summer months the valleys in this small area are ice-free. Still have to watch out for polar bears though!
- Monday 20th May.... the crew look forward to welcoming you aboard at 13:30 on the LOWER BEACH. We love children of all ages and dogs of all sizes, just hop on and enjoy our well stocked bar.
- Not a single square centimetre of open surface escapes a thick coating of moss in this perpetually wet forest, in the Seaforth river valley in southwest New Zealand.
This area is notorious for being incredibly wet, and down here, at the bottom of a very steep sided valley, humidity levels almost constantly hover close to 100%. Everything not living is in a state of slow, natural decay.
- Coastal sand dunes near Fowlers Bay on the arid coast of the Great Australian Bight in South Australia.

- Looking down over the open moorlands of upper Glen Feshie, in the Cairngorm Mountains of Scotland.
This lonely view was only a few days into a 5-week hike across some of Scotlands wildest places in 2009.
- Day 4 (night): Chilcotin Wild Horses, British Columbia, Canada
After the sunset, we headed 2km down a rough logging road to find somewhere to sleep for the night; we were hoping to photograph the same bands at sunrise and wanted a quiet place to camp out, well away from the horses.
Quiet is the last thing we got. At about 10pm, once darkness had set in, the herd moved into the same valley as us. Although we couldn't see horses in the pitch black, we could hear them all around us.
It was a surreal experience and we soon fell asleep, but not for long. Just a couple of hours later we were woken by the screams of stallions fighting; after half an hour the noises soon faded and we drifted off again.
An hour later I was woken by Amanda violently shaking the walls of our tent; all around us hoofbeats thundered across the forest floor, the horses in full flight. So concerned the horses wouldn't see our tent in the darkness, she was set on making as much noise as possible so they wouldn't collide with us in the darkness.
Finally the horses settled and we were able to drift off to sleep again, but by now we were so on edge we were woken by even the slightest noises. All night long stallions battled, and at one point the snorting of a curious horse could be heard as it came up to investigate our camp site.
Never would I have believed so much could happen after dark with the wild horses, and while it was educational and surreal, it certainly didn't make for a well rested night. When our alarms went off at 5am, so we could photograph at sunrise, we were exhausted. #canada #xeni #qayus #xenigwetin #britishcolumbia #wildhorses #wildhorsesoftheworld #wildlifephotograph #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildhorsephotography #awardwinningphotographer #bestsellingauthor #blogger #equestrian #author #authorlife #wilsonsisters #keepingupwiththekaimanawas #equestrian #horse
