I recently returned from my second visit to Patagonia, one of the most remote and wild regions of the planet straddling both Chile and Argentina. Of course, when you travel that far (in my case, 4 plane flights and 26 hours in airports and on airplanes), you want to capture photographs of places that have earned their reputation as "icons" due to their spectacular natural beauty – places like Torres del Paine and Los Glaciares national parks. But what made this most recent trip special were all the seldom-photographed locations I visited with the help of knowledgeable guide, Rex Bryngelson of Patagonia Photo. So included in this latest featured collection of images you'll find iconic images of Mt. Fitzroy and the Cuernos massif as well as amazing less-photographed places like Lago General Carrera, South America's second largest lake, the Marble Caves, the Cuesta del Diablo Pass, the Cerro Castillo Reserve, the Baker River cascade and the Valle Exploradores. Also sharing the spotlight are the images of Andean condors, the largest flying birds in the world, and eagles I photographed from a private estancia in Chile that I posted earlier this month.
Still to come are some photographs of colorful gauchos I encountered who were leading a sheep drive across the Patagonia steppes. I'll be posting those soon.
