Nyiragongo: The Most Dangerous Volcano on Earth
Carsten is consummate explorer, photographer and adventurer. He gave us his philosophy when we asked what the toughest shot was to get on the trip: "Well I was not doing it shot by shot or whatever," he said. "I wanted to narrate a story, and of course there are easier ones and more difficult ones. I mean the whole thing is always a hustle, and it might not always be the most spectacular, but you are struggling the whole time. You never have the feeling you are kind of finished. I mean, that is my general attitude: I don't know exactly if it is now enough to make a story for National Geographic; do I need more? You don't question it; you work as hard as possible. The biggest difficulty was the weather. We had very bad luck with the weather. It was rainy and foggy and misty, and you need a kind of persistence to get the right window."
