On last count, Charles Veley was up to 815 of the total 871. Having made a bundle with a dot.com business, he retired at the end of the 1990s while still in his mid-30s and set out on a life of adventure.
A good man to ask, therefore, about where in the world are the most spectacular places to photograph. In no particular order:
1. Berner Oberland, Switzerland
2. Angel Falls, Venezuela
3. Na Pali Coast, Kauai
4. Tofino and Environs, Vancouver Island
5. Lemaire Channel, Antarctic Peninsula
6. Bouvetoya, South Atlantic
7. Positano, Italy
8. Anse Victorin, Fregate Island, Seychelles
9. Just about anywhere in India
10. San Francisco, USA
