Paddling in a sea of difference

Photography: Vicuña

NETHERLANDS | Tuesday, 5 April 2011 | Views [2020]

Picture this: a vast and empty plain that stretches out as far as the eye can see. I’m in the Argentinian part of Patagonia. The emptiness of the Patagonian landscape is soothing and thrilling at the same time. There is nothing and yet there is everything. The mystic mountains make a fantastic background for this savannah landscape. Flamingo’s feed and bathe in the lakes, bird of prey fly high, sheep and cows are a sign of gaucho’s inhabiting the area, the gravel roads are empty and abundant bunch grasses are nutrient poor food for the subject of this photo: vicuña’s.

Vicuña’s live only in South-America and are related to llama’s. Don’t they look like a cuddly animal with their woolly coat and long ears, gorgeous dark eyes and graceful long eyelashes?!
