The snow-crowned Andes of Bariloche in Argentina’s Patagonia overlooking one of the many surrounding glacial lakes. This place reminded me heaps of Queenstown in NZ. Captured on a cold winter's morning as the sun was just rising.

An illustrative/conceptual image

This image holds personal meaning and attempts to communicate the end of my corporate days and jumping free from the expectations and poisonous influences of western society. And where the water beneath will carry me onto a new more fulfilling path.

This is Iguazu Falls - the largest falls on earth located on the border of Brazil and Argentina

Whilst in Chile I fell for a street dog that had been severely hurt and was starving. So much so that I was serious about bringing him back to Australia with me. The cost aside, it was going to be a difficult process and the biggest barrier meant that it would take at least 4 months before he could even be allowed to enter Australia... So I began to daydream as to what it would be like to travel around South America together and the unique experience that it would bring. This image aims to capture this imagination..

The good news is that after some effort and a hardluck story, the local Vet felt my desperation and adopted him where he has been fattened-up and now looks like a completely new dog.

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.

I've been getting a little restless lately as I've not been able to process images from my recent 6 month travels in South America for the last couple of months. I'm however planning on producing new images come the end of the month so hopefully I'll have some of my better images from my trip to share next month.

In the meantime I've been playing with processing some images on my iPhone (and also captured on my iPhone) and it reminded me to share this little eBook that I put together if anyone's interested. You'll be surprised at what's possible in the recommended software; localised dodging and burning, cloning, localised Curves Adjustments, etc.

Here's an example using Dublin's Spire Tower. Link to the eBook is below.

Hope you enjoy.

If you're interested and can be bothered, I've written some random words on my South America experience so far that isn't generally tied to photography. Here's the link:

Australian Landscape Photography by Ricardo Da Cunha
Introduction

I'm on a journey in trying to find my voice in photography, and possibly more of myself along the way. My images aim to portray a world that I seek; one that is simple and devoid of the noise that increasingly dominates our complicated 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. Photography gives me the silence that I increasingly desire and it's where I restore the balance. 

My images are often not true interpretations of what my camera sees but more importantly they are true interpretations of what I felt or what I thought I was seeing. To me this is more important as it helps enable the photographer to become a part of the photograph, and therefore reflects the photographer's unique personality and thus in turn helping to make images unique.

I aim to produce images with a vision to inspire people to simplify their lives and appreciate the very few things that truly matter and bring us happiness. Therefore my images portray a more simplistic style. Long as I remember I've subconsciously tried to simplify everything in my life, largely due to the anxiety that I suffer from. Incorporating this approach into my photography has been a natural progression and response. It's this underlying vision that guides all the choices I make in my photography today. 

Ultimately I want to create honest, authentic and personally meaningful images that reflect who I am and please no one else but myself.
