As many of you will have heard on the news, Helicopter tragedy. Richard Green and his wife Carolyn and film maker/friend John Davis were killed in a tragic helicopter accident on Sunday afternoon in NSW. My children have been inside Richard & Carolyn's house and they are family friends of my parents. They are much like the rest of us here on ExplorOz - who appreciate the isolated, pristine parts of Australia but they were lucky enough to have the means to visit them with a helicopter rather than a 4WD. As one of Australia's leading landscape photographers his website and photographic books are delightful. Try to get one if you haven't seen one. Richard Green's website

Yes it is tragic news indeed.

I own one of Richards wonderful books ('Remote and Wild') and bought it because it is full of photographs of landscapes of places which I would never get to see otherwise. Many remind me of places we have traveled through.

When we are at home, I often pick it up and get lost in the beauty which each page reveals. The quality and composition are way above any I will ever hope to take and display such passion and empathy for Australia's isolated places.

While i did not know them, since I saw the first reports on TV last night, they have been so often in my thoughts..It is a huge loss

Indeed a sad loss.
If you check the website (google Richard Green Photography) it is chock full of beautiful images and adventures, and they obviously cared for the environment a great deal, leaving places they visited as clean or cleaner than they found.
What incredible lives they led, absolutely to the full, and at least some solace that they died together, and doing something they loved.
