Autumn in the Andes - Parque Nacional Los Glaciares, Patagonia, Argentina
Upon arriving in El Chalten after 3 days of travel ( Seattle > New York > Buenos Aires > El Calafate > El Chalten ) I was finally on the trail with 60 pounds on my back.
Camera gear, food for 2 weeks, tent, sleeping bag, & lots of Gortex aren't as light as you might think. I had completely torn down my bag to the minimum of everything.
This included cutting off clothing tags, ends of straps which I never used, camera straps and every other piece of weight that I could discard. None the less 60 pounds was what I ended up carrying into the wilderness.
The first 2 weeks in Patagonia I spent alone. The next week I would meet up with my buddy Paul & Jacob.
Over the first two weeks I spend time scouting, and exploring the region. I also spent time wondering what the hell I was going to do without seeing anyone for two weeks... strange times.
The first two days were solid, then it started to set in. There was no one out here. I ended up doing a lot of journaling, brainstorming & thinking & reading during the down time of the day.
The photo opps in this part of the world are endless. Add some fall color and massive mountain peaks into the mix.. boom! That's the good stuff!
This specific shot is a single RAW file exposed for the highlights then edited in Lightroom & Photoshop for the result seen.
