A unique place. Encompased by dry climate and vegetation tipical to deserted places. There appear patches of the so called selva Valdiviana. A cold rainforest, found in Valdivia, Region de los Rios. But here on top of the hills, this rare phenomen takes place thanks to the humidity rising from the sea. Clouds form an get traped on the slopes were they soak the ground and water the trees.⠀

Recent Assignment Published, elit™ by Stolichnaya® pristine water series The Andean Edition

In June this year I was approached by Ana, Regional Brand Manager – Latin America & Caribbean at Stoli Group USA. They required images for their campaign of the elit™ by Stolichnaya® pristine water series The Andean Edition. The images had to show the special features of the untouched landscape and pristine waters of the Colico Lake. Located in the Araucanian region of Chile. It was a special experience, as they needed images focusing on the water I had a perfect reason to go there with a Kayak, to explore opportunities from the shores. Though finding the right moment to go there due to the weather conditions was somehow tricky. But I had to take a chance on a three day mixed conditions forecast of suns, period of rain and cloudiness. The resulting images are here. Stoli finally selected three of them for their campaign and two of them are being displayed recently on their website. (

David Gysel ist längst innerhalb der deutsch-chilenischen Gemeinschaft und darüber hinaus als exzellenter Fotograf bekannt. Auch in diesem Jahr machte er sich auf und durchreiste die verschiedenen Landschaften Chiles. Mit dabei im Gepäck: natürlich die Kamera. So entstanden wunderbare Fotos, die David Gysel freundlicherweise dem Cóndor an dieser Stelle zur Verfügung stellte. Mehr Informationen gibt es auf seiner Internetseite
