[Hiking on the Moon] Can you introduce yourself briefly to our readers?
Anoop: Of course! I was born in Bangalore, India. I got interested in nature & photography when I was 6. The three things that shaped my life are: photography, travel and the mountains.

[Hiking on the Moon] Why do you like the mountains so much?
Anoop: There is something about the mountains that brings me to them year after year. Whether in the European Alps or in the Himalayas in Asia, mountains have been a constant in my life for the last decade and a half. When I’m in the mountains, I feel peaceful and I can sit for many hours at a stretch staring at them or spend my time photographing them. Moreover, I love hiking and climbing. The mountains keep me humble, whilst driving me to climb their peaks.

Anoop: My top 2 favorite places are definitively Iceland and Ladakh in India.

[Hiking on the Moon] If you have to describe your country in 3 words, what they will be?

[Hiking on the Moon] What about your dreams?
Anoop: My dream is to work towards ecological conservation, spreading awareness via my pictures while traveling around the world as much as possible.

[Hiking on the Moon] The name of your blog is « Soaring Seagull », where did it come from?
Anoop: Soaring Seagull is inspired from a little book I read when I was a kid. It’s a book called Jonathan Livingston Seagull. It left a huge mark on my outlook in life.
