Taking photographs in Patagonia is hard…really hard. Not only is the weather really inconsistent and the wind relentless but there are other challenges that are not immediately apparent. One of those difficulties that presented a big challenge to me was trying to give these images a sense of scale. I mean these peaks are MASSIVE. The feeling of awe that I had when I first saw Monte Fitzroy is something very hard to convey in a photograph. I am not sure it is possible to get that feeling without actually being there. This here is my best attempt (and it would work better with a large print). Its hard to see on this small resolution file, but my friend Chris is standing in the bottom right corner. His small figure gives you an idea of how big that rock is! I hope the viewer can get even a fraction of the feeling I felt when I made this image. —

Haven't done a laneway for awhile now. Rather miss them.

During 3 1/2 days hiking in the El Chalten area the wind blew almost constantly and clouds obscured the high peaks. Guest books on the tables of the local brewpub documented similar experiences of previous visitors from around the world who had sought solace in the excellent handmade beer. On the morning of our departure, as the bus back to El Calfate turned a corner on the way out of town, we looked through the window and saw Cerro Fitzroy for the first time. The passengers gasped, the driver stopped the bus, and a number of people with cameras (including me) emptied out on to the street to document this (apparently) rare sight. Later in the day, looking back from El Calfate toward the mountains, the high peaks were once again wrapped in clouds.


Durante 3 1 / 2 días de senderismo por la zona de El Chalten el viento soplaba casi constantemente nubes y oscurecido las altas cumbres. Libros de visitas en las mesas de los locales brewpub documentado experiencias similares anteriores de visitantes de todo el mundo que han buscado consuelo en la excelente cerveza artesanal. En la mañana de nuestra partida, ya que el autobús de vuelta a El Calfate convertido una esquina en el camino fuera de la ciudad, buscamos a través de la ventana y vio Cerro Fitzroy por primera vez. El gasped pasajeros, el conductor detuvo el autobús, y un número de personas con cámaras (incluida yo) se desocuparan a la calle a este documento (aparentemente) rara vista. Más tarde en el día, mirando hacia atrás de El Calfate hacia las montañas, los altos picos fueron una vez más envuelta en nubes.

Where today? Hmm. Maybe Patagonia? 4 years ago I took this shot of Mt Fitzroy. It is also known as Cerro Chalten (Smoking Mountain), but on this day it didn't hide behind nasty clouds!


I don't like the colour version, but maybe BW will do better?

I have better photos from my D800 I'm still getting to but the iPhone5S did a pretty good job on this one.

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by my photo stream again, I've been amazed at the response to my last few uploads with two of them going getting high in Explore.


Here's a shot I made last weekend at Fitzroy Falls, on the way back from my camping trip in Kangaroo Valley. It's a 6 shot stitched vertical panorama that looks WAY better when viewed large, so please click on the image to open it in lightbox mode and take a peek at the "All Sizes"


To get an idea of scale, notice the platform in the top left with a couple of people standing viewing the falls from above.


All the best from sunny Sydney, where today is the first day of spring!
