Throughout the years, he had visited over 27 countries and lived in Austria, Venezuela and Zimbabwe before coming to Belize in 1995, his now permanent home.

Stormy evening at Xunantunich

Belize is an amazing place to photograph weather, over the years I have been attracted to tracking approaching storms. When the weather is bad instead of hiding, I tend to get out there and snap a couple shots.

Sometimes weather systems sneak up on you, like a time when I was scouting for a cover shot of Destination Belize at Xuantantunich for the 2012 year of the Maya. I knew it wasn’t the best weather but also I wasn’t after the perfect photo.. I was there to get gather data.. look at possible angles.. see where the sun leaves shadows on those magnificent structures at different times of the day.

Only when I got to the top did I realize how close the storm really was.. and the vantage point was so magnificent that it gave this photographer the gift of a “once in a lifetime” moment. This I will never be able to replicate again, not even if I tried… Not that I want to… that was that, and I captured it. After a couple of shots and realising that I was probably holding the highest metal object, I diligently made my way down. This is the image that reminds me of that stormy evening at Xunantunich
