MUD world
WENATCHEE, WASHINGTON, USA

Washington State residents have a name for the period after the thaw, when unpaved roads become expanses of wet sludge: they call it ‘mud season’.

It’s a difficult time for drivers, but hardened cyclists such as Caleb Ambrose love it. Here, he ploughs along a fresh dirt track at the foot of the Cascade Mountains.

“I wanted a relaxed ride, so I left my camera at home,” says Norwegian photographer Vegard Aasen. “But when I saw these ski tourers, I regretted my decision – the scene looked amazing. So I took a photo with my Huawei P8.”

The result is a smartphone snap that looks like a painting, which was named the winner in the Mobile category of Red Bull Illume, the world’s leading competition for adventure photography.

The Cacodemon boulder in British Columbia has attracted top rock climbers from across the world since the 1970s.

In 2005, US climbing legend Chris Sharma was the first to complete an extremely difficult granite route, which he named Dreamcatcher. Pictured is his fellow countryman Keenan Waeschle on Permanent Waves, a route that clearly pushes back muscles to their limit.
