of the month – Alexander
Wilhelm Heinrich Alexander Freiherr von Humboldt was born on 14
September 1769 in Berlin (Germany).
Von Humboldt laid the foundations
to become a scientific explorer during his time at university,
studying commerce and foreign languages, geology, anatomy, astronomy
and the use of scientific instruments.
Between 1794 and 1796, von Humboldt
travelled extensively through England, Switzerland and Italy,
deepening his geological and botanical interest. >>>
wilderness in Europe
people think of Europe when they think of wilderness, but our
home continent has a rich natural resource of unique wildlife
and pristine landscapes that need careful protection. >>>
Rachel Franks is this month's photo competition winner.
Rachel has taken this shot on our Avenue
of the Volcanoes trip to Ecuador
in September 2006.
Why is it
simple, stark composition works beautifully here. Also, there
is huge achievement in the shot, both from the taker and the two
climbers. It would have been easy to put them in the bottom left
of the shot drawing the eye into the space in front of them, but
this signifies much more. The Avenue of the Volcanoes trek is
not to be taken lightly and it is definitely something people
can be proud of finishing. This shot encapsulates this perfectly.
Tough shot, tough trek.
