“O LORD, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them all.” (Psalm 104:24). From the icy Arctic to Africa’s dense jungles – and the mountain tops of Mongolia to the deep waters of the Pacific – the BBC series Human Planet has explored mankind’s incredible relationship with nature. Accompanying the film crews was photographer Timothy Allen. His stunning still images captured unique glimpses of people living in the world’s most extreme environments. This slideshow is therefore an inspiring view of the wonders of this world and its human inhabitants.
