This December, I’ll be making my yearly visit to the Middle East. Last year, my family told me of an interesting island called Socotra, which is known as Yemen’s Galapagos. I wasn’t able to make the trip there last year, but this year I’ll finally have the chance to do so. The island has been called “The most alien-looking place on Earth” because it is so isolated that a third of its plant life is found nowhere else on the planet! I am beyond excited to visit and photograph this beautiful island.
