Machu Picchu, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World

  Machu Picchu is an icon of the Inca culture. It was built around 1450 for one of the Inca emperors and abandoned a century later during the Spanish Conquest. Hiram Bingham rediscovered it in 1911. The place was so secluded that only local people knew about it. And now it is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.Taking pictures thereis not easy. First of all, there are quite a few tourists visiting the site the whole day through. So, taking pictures without tourists is next to impossible.... continue reading

Face to face with our "relatives"

As it happens when we are confronted with the face of a primate, we sometimes get a shocking impression of looking at somebody who is familiar to us. That happens because many apes share with us our most common feelings like fear, anger, happiness and joy among many others and, what is more important they are able to express this emotions on their face the same way we do.The recent sale of a portrait of a Tufted Capuchin Monkey from Peru gave me the idea of presenting some other close-ups of other... continue reading

Birds of the Peruvian amazon rainforest

Yesterday's sale was this amazing White-chinned Jacamar (Galbula tombacea) of the deep Peruvian rainforest where I have been lucky to shoot in two occasions during the last years. Conditions are tough as even during the "dry" season rain showers may be expected at any time during the day and night. The picture of the Jacamar was taken just after a heavy rainfall.I have added some other photographies of several birds from this beautiful natural environment which I hope will prevail for future generations... continue reading

Colorful Huascarán during sunset

Standing on the remains of an enormous landslide (1970) near Yungay, north of Huaraz (Peru), I took this picture. I was still trying to grasp the impact of the landslide (70000 casualties) when the Huascarán, one of the highest mountains of Peru, started to glow due to the warm light of the sunset. It immediatelygot my attention. The light and the clouds were changing continuously. It was quite an experience.To learn more about Yungay, the earthquake, and the landslide, please read my blog.... continue reading

Chinchero

Chinchero is a small village near Cuzco, Peru. Last year I visited it for the second time (33 years apart). I really enjoyed going there: the white buildings (horizontal and vertical lines), the blue sky with the white clouds, the colorful dresses. The atmosphere has changed drastically: well-organized markets and children being taught about their culture instead of begging. A place worth visiting.See also my blog about Chinchero (including more pictures).   continue reading

Most adorable woolly guys

In 2012 I made my second visit to Peru, this time to the Peruvian amazon which is simply amazing! The seasonal flooding of the amazon that year had been by far much stronger than the average and even the huts of the indians which are built high up on stilts were partially under water.The whole photographic work was made from canoes of different shape and size and the advantage was that some species were easier to see and photograph the normally like the following series of images of Woolly Monkeys... continue reading

rainforest photography

Just two weeks ago I came back from a 20 day trip in the peruvian amazon, beginning in the Andes cloud forest and ending in the flatland rainforest along the Madre de Dios river. The biodiversity is just amazing but the conditions for wildlife photography quite hard. You have to cope with changes from extreme highlights in the hole of the forest canopy with a bird sitting as a perfect silhouette, which forces you to compensate exposure or block the AE on a similar (hopefully) lighted object to absolute... continue reading
