No one gets anywhere alone. Even if it seems like you’re up there all alone, don’t forget how many people are holding your ladder. India men fixing a downed power line, Varanasi, India. November, 2018

This was the moment myself and @leo_eiven reached Dawson City after a couple of weeks of paddling the Yukon river together in 2017.
The greatest thing about this journey is that it came about by pure chance: I met Leo after he'd crashed into a moose on the Cassiar highway where, I had been minding my own business cycling north towards Alaska. We were both looking for an adventure partner and forged a plan right there and then.
We are now great friends and have many ideas for future adventures! If nothing else, it highlights the beauty of spontaneity!
Salt water cures everything. There are new ideas for aquatic adventures in Britain over on thegirloutdoors.com, including nighttime SUPs, shipwrecks and curious sharks. And who’s also planning New Year’s Day dip in the sea? 🏊🏻♀️
My love and my pain I felt for you has not diminished but it looks smaller now as I travel closer to the moon.

I'm waiting on the day where I can explore, then keep exploring and not have to worry about coming back to reality of the 9-5 work life! The grind is still kicking, but one day exploring endlessly will be my reality!
Can you spot all the birds? Comment how many you think there are! This stepwell, hundreds of feet deep, is one of more than a hundred in Jodhpur, a city that does an unusually good job at maintaining and utilizing these beautiful works of art through recreational and domestic purposes as stepwells in the rest of the country are quickly disappearing.

The Laguna de Guatavita became reluctantly the craddle of the El Dorado's myth and many believed that this small circular crater lake, once a sacred and ritual center of the Muisca people, was home to mountains of golds and emeralds, which would explain its emerald color.
What lead so many to believe that? In ancient times, the Muisca people believed that the crater has been created by a meteor that transported a golden god who resided in the lake's floor. During a ceremony, the leader of the tribe would throw precious offerings in the lake from a ceremonial raft before to plunge into the waters to obtain godlike power.
Over the years, many attempted to find the gold by draining the lake or diving, leaving the place in bad conditions... Fortunately nowadays, the site is under strict protection.
Many gold items were found here and are now displayed in the Museo del Oro in Bogotá.

Back in 2016, I jumped at the chance to book a cheap last minute flight to Iceland around this time of year. Excited for the quick getaway with one of my best friends, I remember having excitedly told some coworkers that I would be gone for 4 days. This one woman (let’s call her Kelly, lol), rubbing her pregnant belly and sore lower back, loudly inquired, in front of everyone in the office... “Are you going to Iceland JUST to say you went?” I replied “Kelly, when was the last time you had an adventure?” ((((( 🦗 crickets 🦗))))) #iceland#theadventurehandbook#teamricohimaging#whileinbetween#documentary
Looking at this picture, I’m missing Japan. The people, the food, the use of colours, the way they dress, friendliness. Missing you, my love…
Great work by Eric. Thank you so much for sharing your beauty with us.
In such a different world with signs mostly comprehensible only as light lines, you create a universal understanding by lending us your eye.
Peaceful, detailed, looking down from a place you could watch from for hours, looking at what the light did now.. and now… and now… …

Last year a dream came true. Out of the mysterious lights rose a phonecall: if I wanted to work with D.O.P. Roger Deakins @rogerdeakins (Bladerunner 2049, Skyfall, The Big Lebowski and what not ;-)) Director John Crowley (Brooklyn, Boy A) and Art Director K.K. Barrett (Lost in Translation, Her) on a big new feature film: ‘The Goldfinch’. Working with these sweet guys was something special.
‘The Goldfinch’: in 2019… in a theatre near you… Location Scouting by yours truly *takes a bow*. This image is a still from ‘Bladerunner 2049’. Roger just won his Oscar for best cinematography on this epic movie and three days later we were having dinner together (lucky me).
‘Bladerunner 2049’ made me visit the Imax theatre two times in 24 hours. Also because of the great filmscore, by Hans Zimmer (@hanszimmer)

I must remember myself to spend more days at the beach next year.
