The surreal red coloured Laguna Colorada - one of the highlights of a trip to the Bolivian Altiplano and home to approximately 30,000 flamingos. On this evening the weather was as surreal as the landscape with an extraordinary storm that passed.

Pomerape Volcano at 6,282m lying within the Andes on the border of Chile and Bolivia. I quickly grapped this shot before we were hit by a big and memorable surreal thunderstorm.

Hope you enjoy!

Dedicated to the people of Nepal. Thinking about all our less fortunate cousins doing it extremely tough right now.

This is Mt Churup at 5,495m above sea level in coincidentally the earth's tallest mountain range outside of the Himalayas called Cordillera Blanca in northern Peru. An area with 20+ peaks above 6,000m containing Peru's tallest at 6,768m and with many glaciers that are unfortunately disappearing.

My Limited Edition print no.2 for my Street Dog Fundraiser will be shared next for anyone who might be interested in helping out.

Cheers

::A CALL FOR HELP::

I've been thinking a lot lately about how I can help the plight and suffering of stray dogs here in South America. In Santiago alone, it's estimated that there are between 1 and 2 million homeless neglected dogs fighting to stay alive. More than food though, what these dogs crave the most is love and affection. Seeing the sorrow in their eyes has deeply affected me and dominated my thoughts of late. It's as if their spirit has been stolen from them...

Part of me wants to do something meaningful with my life and start-up a new campaign and devote my energy and focus towards doing everything that I can to raise public awareness and funds to lobby for government legislation to impose mandatory free de-sexing and to implement dog welfare and responsibility education programs. Although there are already well established groups doing good things, and what they really need from us is funding so that their voice can be heard.

So to try and help a little I'm going to be trying to sell a limited set of 5 South America based image prints (5 of each for a total of 25) where absolutely all money collected will be donated to various group's trying to help. I will foot all printing and shipping costs as my contribution. You can buy each 20" print (printed on fine art paper) for only $200 AUD delivered and know that there will only be 4 more like it ever sold. But better than this, you'll be able to take pride in knowing that you will have also donated to an amazingly meaningful cause to ease the suffering of human's best friend in less fortunate countries.

A receipt for the donation of your purchase amount will be delivered with your print so you can also use it to claim a tax deduction.

Please help. Together we can raise $5K which can go a long way...
--
Here's print no.1 of 5 up for grabs yours printed on fine art paper for just $200 delivered and with all money donated towards the street dogs of South America.

Strictly only 5 prints will ever be sold.

This is Volcán Villarrica in Chile standing at 2847m above sea level. It's an active volcano where there is frequent smoke blowing out from the crater and from where a red glow can be seen at night.

Please just either send me a message or leave a comment below if you're interested and I'll be in touch to do everything else.

Of course you don't need to buy a print to help so please let me know if you'd prefer to make a smaller donation and I'll tell you how you can do so.

Thanks for the support.

Among the largest flying birds on earth, the Andean condor is a fascinating creature. It can travel as far as 250km a day and glide for hours without moving its wings which can have a wingspan of up to 3.3m. It is said that the Andean Condor commits suicide when it senses that its time is near by flying high enough into the sky and then spirals down to its death.

Australian Landscape Photography by Ricardo Da Cunha
Introduction

My images portray a world that I seek; one that is simple and void of the clutter and noise that increasingly dominates our lives.
 
I like to give my subjects space for them to breathe; just like I need to find space so that my soul can breathe.
 
My images are often not true renditions of what my camera sees but more importantly they are true representations of what I felt or I thought I was seeing. To me this is more important as it enables for the photographer to enter and become a part of the photograph, and therefore adds the personality that helps make images unique.
 
As my photography evolves I now aim to produce images that more closely reflect on the person I am. Today I aim to produce images with a vision to inspire people to simplify their existence and appreciate the very few things that truly bring happiness into our lives. Therefore my images now portray a more simplistic style. They aim to simplify the complicated mess that a landscape can be and focus on trying to capture space, light and textures. Long as I remember I’ve subconsciously tried to simplify everything in my life, one of my core values, and so incorporating this approach into my photography has been a natural progression. It’s this underlying vision that guides all the choices I make in my photography today, along with a willingness to experiment to try and create something new.
