Shot during a climb up the Machame Route of Mount Kilimanjaro in April 2012, held to raise money for Childreach International (

The timelapse shots were taken using a Canon 400d, the video shots with a Canon 600d.

I would have taken more footage, but the freezing cold drained the batteries faster than expected, and heavy rain on some days meant the cameras stayed in my dry bag :(

For the shot of the summit with the stars, I went to the toilet at 4am at Barranco camp, and noticed the clouds had cleared. There was a full moon which overexposed the shot, but it dropped below a ridge an hour before sunrise, meaning I could capture my favourite shot of the trek!
