    Whilst on mission in Afghanistan for the World Food Programme, I had to travel the 10kms or so every day from the office to the warehouse complex. Winter in Kabul is cold, wet and usually shrouded in a heavy fog. These lads were walking along the road early in the morning and the colourful balloons certainly changed our day

    Having worked there for years, truly reflects the local environment and its hardship in winter.

    Hi Georges, thanks for the comment.  I have now completed six missions into Afghanistan and visited most of the areas and still find it fascinating.  The people I train are friendly and make me feel very welcome in their country.  I just hope that things work out for them in the very near future.

    I once read that photography has a lot to do with light and opportunity. You certainly have those two elements in your beautiful picture!

    Hi everyone, Many thanks for the kind words.  I want to keep taking photos in as many places as I travel with my work, sometimes it is very difficult and I like to respect people.  Thanks again it makes me want to keep trying.
