Ad­ven­tures in the Arc­tic Cir­cle and more of your im­ages from around the world

I rented a lo­cal fish­ing boat with its crew and is­land­hopped around Ko­modo Na­tional Park. Be­sides meet­ing the Ko­modo dragons, one of the high­lights here is to hike on Padar Is­land. When I ar­rived, hardly any­one was there, since it was still early in the travel sea­son. It felt like I had the whole is­land to my­self. The first thing I did was to hike to the top of this hill. It was tir­ing, but the view was amaz­ing: I could see most of the is­land and its three coves, and the set­ting sun added a lovely light to the scene. I felt very lucky to get this shot, es­pe­cially as the crew told me there had been a storm the day be­fore I ar­rived.

Ko­modo is part of the Lesser Sunda Is­lands in In­done­sia and is par­tic­u­larly fa­mous as be­ing home to the Ko­modo dragon, the world’s largest lizard
