I was working on a photo story about a herdsman who works 48-hour shifts on the Great Plains of eastern Hungary, where he herds 362 semi wild Hungarian Grey cattle by himself. The breed are indigenous to the country, and are considered a national symbol of Hungary.
The herdsman, 62-year-old Janos Bana, is doing the same work his ancestors have done for hundreds of years and represents a rare profession that is disappearing in the modern world.
Eigg, Inner Hebrides, Scotland

I had never had the privilege of visiting the Island of Eigg, located about ten miles off the Scottish mainland, but its rich and varied wildlife, beautiful scenery and its residents’ attempts to become self sufficient, made it somewhat famous.
The idea of sustainability is something that concerns us all, and I was interested to see first-hand if it worked on such a small scale.
