Flinders Ranges / Australia
About 5 hours north of Adelaide the landscape turns a shade of golden brown and dusty ochre. It's tough country for those who farm the land and can be pretty tough on the indigenous wildlife too. Ikara is the traditional name for what was called "The Flinders Ranges" by colonial settlers. As mountains go they are modest, having been worn down over millions of years to just a blip on the horizon. But within these subtle folds there are unique and beautiful ecosystems, attracting a wealth of flora and fauna.

Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
