This article was originally written by Carol Kuruvilla for the Huffington Post. The following is an excerpt. 

After growing up near the wild and rugged central California coastline, Chris Burkard became convinced that there was much more beauty to be found in the world.

Since picking up a camera in high school, Burkard has traveled to Iceland, India, Norway, Russia and many other countries in pursuit of nature’s wonders. In his photographs, human figures are often lost in the vastness of icy mountain ranges or thunderous waterfalls. A member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he said it’s his faith that helps him connect with the places he visits.
