Piyathasanan says he hopes his photography will inspire others to pick up a camera and do some travelling of their own.
"The goal of my photography is to illustrate the beauty of nature and, hopefully inspire people to take up photography. My opinion is that the more we see of this world, the more knowledgeable we become of the planet we live in," he wrote in his blog.
