At a time when the entire planet is so seemingly accessible in the palm of a hand, it’s easy to forget quite how small we humans truly are beyond the bright pixelated glare in our grasp. Sure we can stake our claim as arguably the most dominant species on the planet. It’s easy enough with coffee to hand, Bieber on shuffle and a hop, skip and trundle through check-in confirmed with the click of a button. Beyond the doors and glossy metropolitan lights, however? Well, we love a good cliché, so do with it as you will... It’s a big wild world out there. Not as big as the sun, mind, but with a surface area more than 500 million kilometres strong, we won’t be picky. From tropical beach to glacier; desert to ocean; lush rainforest to barren volcano, it’s both exhilarating and a little daunting to suddenly find yourself a visual speck amid an enormous and exceptional vista. It also makes for a fantastic scene to capture on camera. Luckily for us, there’s no shortage of photographers willing to wander, hike and scramble to make that moment happen. Check out a selection of the very best.
