Travel photographer Michael Runkel took a journey to the majestic Simien Mountains of northern Ethiopia, home to a unique species of monkey: geladas. These large, long-haired primates live only in the country’s highlands – a range of deep ravines and towering rock formations – and eat mainly grasses.¬†Michael specialises in taking photos of UNESCO world heritage sites, and his collection covers 630 of them, one of the most extensive of its kind.
