The Worst Way to Cross the River

    Newer Older

    After we set up camp in a little wooded area, we headed off to see if we could get to one of the glaciers by sunset. This is near Cerro Torre, a region that is disputed between Argentina and Chile. I didn't see much of a dispute while I was there -- no armies or anything. I did see some wayward Guanacas, but I was not sure which side they were on.

    I walked along the river until I got to a stopping point, where I got stuck. I couldn't cross because it was too sketchy, even for me. So I set up here to prepare for the sunset. This was shot about two hours prior to the sunset while I was exploring the area. I'll be sure to edit the other photos soon (ish) and get them up!

      You know what's really sick about you trey?
      Even your non-mind-blowing shots are better than my I-killed-myself-to-get-this-shot stuff. That's why there is so much loathing and anger.

      In my next life I want to come back as your lens cap.

      Great pictures - I love how the clouds add a touch of pink that matches the stones. Awesome capture.

      The texture on the water is SPECTACULAR! This is probably one of my favorite pictures of yours to date, very nice!!!

      Well this is a little different for you, the foreground taking precedent over the background, I wouldn't have picked it out of a lineup as an image of yours. Nice exposure on the water, and the colours in the trees are sublime.
