Chepu is a remote part of Chiloé Island, off the coast of Chile. At 4am we set off into the darkness and drifted through a sunken forest, waiting for nature to awaken around us. With the light changing, the mist dispersing and the sounds of silence, this was one of those moments in life when all thoughts escape you and you are truly immersed in the beauty of the world. It seemed we were somewhere between heaven and earth.
