The day the storm blew in & I lost many wonderful photo opportunities - This amazing landscape is tucked away amidst 800+ Volcanoes in the '' National Park of '' PAYUNIA '' The colours of this deep rustic red Volcanic gravel is breathtaking to see & the mustard to bright yellows of the vegetation that cover the Volcano's is a sight to behold.
Sadly it was an organised tour with a guide & there were very few photographic stops due to the bad weather.
That's not to say I came away empty handed!!! x

Surova priroda a lepa ...
Vrlo interesantno mesto sa vulkanskim pepelom, kamenjem i pogledom na planine u daljini, dobra kompozicija.
Dobar snimka, perspektiva i prikaz, lepe boje.
The cruel nature of a beautiful ...
Very interesting place with volcanic ash, rocks and a view of the mountains in the distance, a good composition.
Good shot, the perspective and view, beautiful colors.
All the best.

Such a wonderful photo. It seems to be two different worlds here. Great colors and great shot with little light. Someday this landscape might have beautiful trees growing and animals running around. Wish I could just sit right there and watch it happen.

Hi Dawn - I hadn't realised that you'de been a member for some time.
I do like this photo with its deep reds and soft coloured hills behind. Interesting pattern of rocks.
You've a good collection of photos on TE - you'll have to join SHPS as well!!!
Carry on enjoying Argentina.

Hola dear Dawn
You definitely did not come away empty-handed. This one's a corker! And except for that little bit of greenery it really could be our own Red Centre. Beautiful textures and tones. A minimalistic and superbly composed shot. Love it!

Incredible landscape, it seems from another planet
Great POV with the little rocks leading the way to the mountains of the BG

Such a pleasing perspective in this picture, and such a contrast of colour. This really feels otherworldly. Beautiful.

What an amazing deserted place! A huge red desert of barren volcanic gravel, interrupted only by a few small scattered rocks. An amazing sight indeed but this is against a beautiful distant vista of rolling hills beneath a rather threatening sky. Or is that "threatening sky" due to volcanic ash too?
Fabulous colours, great depth of field, perfect exposure and stunning detail and clarity.

You got a nice landscape view with this surprizing red ground as main entry of the view and pushing the look to discover the volcano reliefs in background. It makes me think about some lanscapes from Iceland: similar colors and vegetation.

This picture has beautiful (color) layers
and this creates with the little stone
on the forground a very nice depth in this
picture. The light management is also

the variety of Argentina“s landscapes never ceases to amaze and to delight me.It“s like the whole world in one country.Deserts are this type of landscapes I like the most.On the one hand raw and hostile for the human,but on the other hand having something unique and beautiful in itself.You were able to convey well the beauty of this place.The image excellently framed and has superb clarity,depth and nice,well-saturated colors.
Have a good sunday
jmdias (52055) 2012-09-01 3:12
very nice image. I liked the position of the rocks in the middle of the red soil with those beautiful hills ahead. perfect sense of art catching the elements from the foreground to the background. nice job from this part of argentina I don't know yet.

This one photo was worth it! Even though it must have been painful to not have better weather and to be passing by opportunities. Again, the landscape here is from another world. It's like Mars, but better. Congrats on this photo.
Have a great week,
macjake (51492) 2012-09-15 13:47
yes, when it comes to organized tours, you will have limited times to stop and photograph :(
even with the bad weather, i still think you came away with a successful photo. it just adds to the overall atmosphere.
I'm sure people are saying it to you, but it looks as if you're on mars.
great to see far away places like this one.
frunchy (1517) 2012-09-17 4:12
that's an amazing landscape! I like the combination of the red foreground and the green hills in the back. The country looks wide and empty, beautiful!
TFS, best regards, F.

Hi Dawn !
This is a breathtaking perspective, I simply love it:)
I guess, the foreground must have reminded you on your native country, kind of little Alice Springs...
Open spaces always inspire my mind and soul to follow the wonderful landscape till the next horizon shows its face.

Hi Dawn - What a wild landscape and despite the storm, or maybe due to it, this is a very atmospheric shot. The grittiness of the red gravel is so well captured and the light across the hills in the distance is subtle and beautiful. I love the way the small angular rocks are scattered through the shot. What a wonderful location and a super shot. Warm regards rosemary

marina7 (8049) 2012-12-20 8:19
Hi Dawn, just spotted this one in your gallery - it looks fantastic, just like a Martian landscape, isn't it?:)
Beautiful composition with the stones leading the eye right to the mountains and moody sky. Lovely work!
Romano46 (16578) 2013-01-27 6:05
spesso mi piace guardare le foto degli autori utilizzando la ricerca random e tra le foto proposte c'era questa che eccelle per composizione alla quale aprtecipa attivamente il colore.
La bellezza sta infatti essenzialmente nel rosso della terra che copre gran parte del fotogramma e le montagne brulle che fanno da stacco con il cielo dal colore cupo. L'elemento che rompe la monotonia perņ sono le pietre che sembrano disegnare un cammino verso i monti. Una bella occasione che hai saputo riprendere nella migliore maniera .
Ciao e buona domenica

Inspit of the rain, I can see a vast landscape with red soil and low grass as far as the eyes can see, dawn.
Take your word there are some 800Vulcanos, not that I know any name about...
DOF and low mild light match the general scenery conveyed.
elenimavrandoni (14197) 2013-02-23 19:26
Hello Dawn, taking advantage of every situation is the challenge for every photographer.
Great picture of the Red Center, amazingly composed and presented.
All the best,
mafegan (8624) 2013-03-17 0:57
If I didn't know better I would also have thought this was from 'our' own red centre. Often on dismal days we are able to capture some of our best shots - and this is a very good example. Tfs, Marlene
