Your landscape photography is fantastic, but you also shoot downhill skateboarding events. Tell us a little about the sport and why you enjoy photographing it in such scenic environments.

For the most part it is skaters riding gravity down mountainous roads. I’m endlessly inspired by the way riders use and respond to the road. Even the roads themselves are inspiring, they can be beautiful structures designed to over come the brutality of nature. Seeing riders blast down an epic, scenic road is an art form unto itself. From a photographic stand point what’s not to like? Action, leading lines and a beautiful backdrop.

Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer. 

Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range. 

Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.
